Passengers stranded as Labour shuts down Airports

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have launched an industrial action over the Federal Government’s refusal to increase the proposed minimum wage to N60,000.

As a result, the domestic wing of Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos has been shut down, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded.

The aviation unions, led by the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), locked the gates to the airport building, affecting operations at the MMA2 and General Aviation Terminal (GAT).

However, international flights have been granted a 24-hour grace period, and operations at the international terminal remain unaffected for now.

According to the NUATE Secretary General, “The domestic terminals, GAT and MMA2, are closed due to the NLC and TUC directive.

The strike will extend to the international terminal tomorrow, unless the directives are revoked.”

The strike action will continue until further notice, causing disruptions to airport operations and travel plans.”
