The National Union of Air Transport Employees, Air Transport Senior Staff Services Association of Nigeria and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers had in a joint statement on Monday ordered its members to commence the strike.
The unions said the strike would continue indefinitely, until their demands are met by the management of Arik Air.
Their demands include total unionisation of Arik Air employees, recall of all sacked employees and payment of salary arrears for seven months and a commitment to pay salaries as at when due, henceforth.”
They also called for the immediate review of all employee remunerations which had remained the same since the inception of Arik Air, over ten years ago.
