Chanchangi workers protest non-payment of 36 months salary


Over 53 workers of Chanchangi Airlines on Monday at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, protested the non-payment of their salary that have accrued for 36 months.

The workers claimed that the unpaid salaries had accrued since 2010, when the carrier advised them to embark on compulsory leave.

Babadiya Ahmed, the airline’s station manager, explained that the workers were not sacked, but that the airline’s management was already looking into the issue.

According to him, they were asked to proceed on compulsory leave due to operational issues the carrier was having, saying that nobody had received any pay since then.

The workers, who started the protest from the ticket counters of the new domestic terminal of the General Aviation Terminal (GAT), said all attempts to draw the attention of the airline’s management to their plight had fallen on deaf ears, hence the need to carry out the protest.
