Resume At Lagos Airport As Ground Handlers Suspend Strike

International flights have resumed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos as aggrieved ground handlers suspended their industrial action after about 14 hours.

An official of the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATTSSSAN) confirmed the suspension of the strike to Channels Television.

Scores of international passengers at the airport in Lagos were stranded on Monday as workers of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) embarked on strike. The situation led to the disruption in flight services of many international airlines.

The protesting ground handlers demanded better welfare and increased salaries.

NAHCO had reportedly gone to court and obtained an injunction stopping the workers from embarking on strike.

Some of the flights disrupted so far by the industrial action include those of Royal Air Maroc which was stopped by protesting ground handlers around 2am on Monday. Also affected was that of Qatar Airways.

However, in a communique issued at the end of a meeting by ATTSSSAN, NAHCO and National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) late Monday, the trio agreed that negotiations of increased staff welfare will be concluded within a week.
