The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said it may not be able to pay full salary of staff as from May 2020 until the industry returns to normalcy.
It said this follows the dwindling revenues occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic.
The organisation however assured that as soon as the revenue situation improves, the balance would be paid.
The airports’ authority announced the decision to cut staff salary in an internal memo with reference number FAAN/HQ/ADMIN/2020O5 dated May 19, 2020, and signed by General Manager, Administration, FAAN, M.D. Musa.
The circular is titled, “Notice on payment of staff salary” addressed to all staff, the memo stated that the measure was to ensure the survival of the organization.
It was gathered that Junior staff would be paid their full salary while Senior staff from levels 10 and above would take between 30 to 50 per cent pay cut.
Sources said the three main workers union in the aviation industry have rejected the proposal as talks are still ongoing to reach a compromise.
