NUP Suspends Nationwide Protest, Settles Dispute With FAAN Over CPA
The protest across Nigeria’s airports by Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP) Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) branch, earlier scheduled to hold by March 1, 2022 over non implementation of their Consequential Pension Adjustment (CPA) has been suspended.
It would be recalled that NUP, FAAN branch last year blocked FAAN entrance gate while protesting against the non implementation of their Consequential Pension Adjustment (CPA).
NUP General Secretary, Comrade Emeka Njoku then told journalists that series of meetings were held between them and the management of FAAN without positive results
In September 2021, FAAN management agreed to commence payment in January 2022 but failed to meet up. With this, the NUP gave ultimatum to FAAN to pay on or before 1st March 2022 and a meeting was brokered while the protest was shelved.
The NUP however vowed to begin protest without notice within two weeks if the management of FAAN failed to commence payment as agreed.
Investigations reveal that both parties might have reached an agreement that an implementation committee is to be set up comprising two members of NUP, two representatives of the Director of Finance FAAN, a representative of the audit department and three from the Human Resources and Administration Directorates.
They are to draw up a template for the Consequential salary /pension adjustment as concrete evidence, provide evidence of progress implementation from various directorates within two weeks in March 2022.
