The Nigerian Union of Pensioners, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria branch, has revealed its plans to commence a nationwide protest with effect from May 4, 2021, due to the failure of FAAN to implement a new payment agreement.

This was disclosed by the National Secretary of NUP, The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN)  branch, Emeka Njoku, at a rally held at the local Airport Ikeja on Wednesday.

According to Njoku, the management of FAAN had bluntly refused to implement Conditions of Service as reached by the committee set up by FAAN over the disparity in salaries.

“The committee recommended that 18 per cent should be paid to level 1 – 14 to cushion the large disparity in the system as it was noticed during implementation,” he noted.

He accused the management of FAAN of twisting the agreement and dragging the minister into a matter that was within the management of FAAN.

Njoku explained that it was agreed by the aviation ministry that levels 1 – 14 should benefit from it since levels 15 and above were already operating it.

The NUP scribe noted that the committee ended its sitting and submitted its recommendations before the COVID-19 pandemic and but the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria failed to implement it.

“All members of NUP would from May 4 be mobilised for protests in airports across the country,” Njoku noted while stating that Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria owed them in arrears since the COS was implemented in 2019.
