NLC gives Air peace, Bristow helicopters 14 days to recall sacked pilots

The Nigeria Labour Congress has condemned and rejected the sack of 100 Pilots by Air Peace and 69 Pilots by Bristow Helicopters.

The union also condemned the sack of the executives of National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) working with Turkish Air.

The NLC said the sack of the workers by the airlines was highly insensitive, callous, and unjust.

In a statement by President of the NLC, Ayubba Wabba, the union gave the airlines two weeks to recall the sacked workers or face industrial unrest.

The NLC vowed to fight for the reinstatement of the sacked workers and for workers’ unionisation in Air Peace.

“We call on the management of Turkish Air, Air Peace and Bristow Helicopters to reinstate all the sacked workers within two weeks.

“As agreed between labour and Employers’ Association, social dialogue should be used to resolve industrial concerns instead of the current resort to unilateralism.

“We will not hesitate to mobilise the weight of the entire Nigerian workforce to the premises of Turkish Air, Air Peace and Bristow Helicopters if our demands are not met,” the statement said.


  1. So they should just recall them. And if they can’t pay them?? Abi it’s for u paid work??

    1. I am just here wondering, See command tone. As if NLC has any job to offer.

      May be they expect the airlines to go and steal to pay workers when there's no business

  2. It's obvious everyone are aware it is the outcome of covid
