Aviation unions have continued their blockade of the Murtala Muhammed Airport (II) in Lagos for the second day as they protest over the alleged sack of some staff of Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited.

The union leaders insist that they will not vacate the gate until Bi-Courtney Aviation Services reinstates the sacked workers who were allegedly relieved of their jobs for participating in union activities.

Before now the company said it had begun downsizing staff owing to age and dwindling fortunes.

The protesting unions are the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE).
