Union Charges NCAA On Staff Training, Infrastructure


The National Union
of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) has tasked the management of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on staff training and improved state of infrastructure.
According to a statement issued on Wednesday, a copy of which was made available to The Tide in Port Harcourt and signed by the NUATE Secretary, Comrade Olayinka Abioye, there have been lackadaisical attitudes on the part of the management of NCAA in training and retraining of staff working with the Aviation Authority.
Abioye said that there is also poor state of office infrastructure at the NCAA, stressing that such a state of infrastructure is inimical to staff conveniences and motivation to work.
He said that NCAA management has failed profoundly to enhance and engender human capital development through routine training and re-training of its personnel which is paramount in the discharge of staff responsibilities to airline operations and inspection.
The NUATE scribe said that the insensitivity of NCAA management to staff is posing grave danger to the aviation industry, adding that staffs are not equipped with the requisite knowledge in line with contemporary development in the aviation industry.
The union said that infrastructure has become decadent and obsolete to the extent that pieces of furniture, working tools, including computers and other accessories are all in a deplorable state within NCAA offices.
The union therefore demanded for immediate NCAA management approved staff training commencement to save the aviation industry from its parlous state.
