According to Vanguard, the Deputy General Secretary of the union, Mr Frances Akinjole on Wednesday stated that the union ended the strike following the intervention of the Ministry of Labour & Employment, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, the Federal Airport Authority , the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency and other airport security agencies at a meeting in Lagos.

“The strike that was embarked upon on Nov. 1 against the Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited has been called off pursuant the acceptance by the company to recall the laid off members of our union and an undertaking to pay their salaries.

“The agreement was reached at a meeting empaneled by the Ministry of Labour & Employment, NCAA, FAAN, NAMA and airport security agencies,” he said.
