UNION, KENYA AIRWAYS BICKER OVER SACK OF 22 NIGERIANS

The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) says it is set for industrial action with the management of Kenya Airways over the recent sack of no fewer than 22 Nigerians. Eyes Of Lagos gathered that, Mr Olayinka Abioye, the General Secretary of NUATE, told the newsmen on Monday in Lagos that the union was unimpressed with the shabby treatment meted to Nigerian employees by the airline. “The union has already reported the issue to several top agencies of government. We are consulting with the staff now before we plan our next line of industrial action. “Definitely, there will be action, the consequences of which we did not know at the moment. “We are going to make sure that we ground the operations of the airline in Nigeria, if the management fails to do the needful,’’ Abioye said. He alleged that the airline violated the extant labour laws by declaring the affected workers redundant and refused to pay them their entitlements. According to him, the union has been communicating in writing with the management of the airline before they took the unilateral decision to disengage the workers. “Management does not have the right to unilaterally negotiate the severance package of workers without inputs from the union; that is not how it works and I am sure they cannot do that in Kenya. “So, there is certainly going to be an action unless they officially write us and call us back to the table to begin to renegotiate,” he added. However, the airline, had in a letter dated April 11 addressed to NUATE, accused the union of being unwilling to engage the management in negotiations on behalf of the affected workers. The letter, which was signed by Kenya Airways acting Chief Human Resources Officer, Mrs Bridgette Imbuga, claimed that the airline had to use its best endeavours to negotiate terms for the workers. Imbuga noted that the employees affected by the redundancy were those performing sales and commercial roles which had now been contracted to a General Sales Agent (GSA). She said that the airline had complied with the provisions of Sections 20 (1) (a) and (b) of the Labour Act, Cap 198, Laws of Nigeria, in declaring the affected workers redundant. Imbuga said that subsequently, the airline would proceed with the payment of their one month salary in lieu of notice and severance allowance at the rate of 23 days’ basic salary for every completed year of service. According to her, among other entitlements, the workers will also receive payment for unutilised leave days accrued as at the date of redundancy.

If you are a business man, Kenya airline is the best. Imagine 3 × 23kg pcs checkin luggage when useless Emirate dey accept just 30kg. Not justifying or condemning the sack though, that is a business btw the airline and its employees.

I'm sure Nigerians would be happy with Kenya for fighting for us.

We can do the same with each other rather than pulling your neighbour down.

Indeed, a mad man never knows he is mad, except those around him. If not, I wonder where the shame is when a union here is getting worked up on the decision of another country to run its airline the way it thought is best suits it. If we are not happy, where is our own airways?

Till we have our own, let's just remain calm Nigeria

I attempted Emirates last year, they insisted 30kg and my luggage was over 40kg. And the cost for excess luggage is very annoying, that was how I discovered Kenya Airways. It is not promo, you can check now, it has not really changed. Though, 23 instead of 30.

They will not address their national problem before running to issues outside....

right here in this country if u are lucky enough to get a job in the north as a Yoruba or igbo christian under the civil service...u are placed on a form of contract..u have no right to pension, the name u are working under is one of their own pple that has not graduated that will take ur pension and it's not a secret....their government is aware...

They can't allow u work for too long and become a director or something, they will place a trainee under u after graduation, once the trainee is capable after some years, ur job is done...

The only way to stay is be an fanatic three quarters trouser Muslim or marry their woman.....

Moreover we are teribble pple, we have no integrity in the international world...the UK prison have over 10% of their prisoners as nigerians

Me I no blame Kenya airways oooo....sometimes telling pple I'm Nigerian is shameful in some places..they are either scared of u or make fun of ur country's government

People attacking the company should look at the severance package(which is good imho) and note that the goal of any surviving business is profit. The GSA that will handle the duties of the laid off workers will still employ Nigerians at a lower salary. Your government and political class is to blame for the need to lay them off while you are to blame for the population explosion in Nigeria.
