NUATE Issues Notice Of Solidarity Strike With ASUU
The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) says the union stands ready to embark on industrial action in solidarity with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), should the Federal Government fail to heed the call to address the lingering ASUU strike.
A statement signed by Comrade Ocheme Aba, General Secretary, NUATE says NUATE completely supports the position of the National Executive Council of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to the effect that Government must immediately resolve the prolonged ASUU strike.
“It is totally unacceptable to allow the education of the children of poor workers, and other poor citizens, to be so badly truncated as to become worthless.
As such, NUATE totally supports the public demonstrations ordered by NLC to call on the Federal Government to urgently resolve the imbroglio. NUATE further affirms that the union stands ready to embark on industrial action in solidarity with ASUU, should the Federal Government fail to heed the call to duty over this matter.
Accordingly, aviation workers nationwide are hereby notified to remain at alert for commencement of solidarity industrial action that may be directed by the NLC and its affiliates on the matter which may come at short notice,” states NUATE.
