NAAPE Calls For Upward Review Of Remunerations Of Pilots, Engineers

The National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) has called for the upward review of the renumerations of Pilots and Engineers with Nigeria College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) Zaria to be at per with her counterpart in private aviation establishment.

The association who made the appeal in a communique issued at the end of it’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja said this is necessary to prevent these set of workers resigning from NCAT.

The communique which was signed by the president Comrade Abednego Galadima also called for training and retraining of pilots and Engineers in the country.

NAAPE further expressed concern at some aviation establishment employing professionals to vacant position on salary grade levels 12 without considering existing staff with lower salary grade with requirement to occupy such positions.

The communique reads”Harmonization of salaries and wages of all Nigerian Aviation Agencies

“Some Aviation Agencies have been observed to recruit professionals into vacant positions on Salary Grade Levels 12 and above without giving priority to existing staff on lower Salary Grade Level that may have met the requirement to occupy those vacant positions.

“Also, some of these recruitments are often not done in accordance with approved documents such as the Public Service Rule, Condition of Service and Scheme of Service.

“NAAPE frowns at this anomaly and hereby mandates that all concerned employers should not only remit such overdue staff pensions into the respective Retirement Savings Account (RSA) of staff but also ensure that the requirements of the Pension Scheme are always strictly adhered to.

“NAAPE totally condemns the wrong designation of holders of Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence (AMEL) as “Technicians” by aviation employers.

The AMEL is issued by NCAA based on the Nig.CARs. Therefore, any designation other than an engineer that is given to these license holders would be perceived as a violation and should stop with immediate effect”.
