Just In: Arik Air Sacks 300 Workers.
Arik Air today Friday, December 2020 sacked 300 staffers from its workforce, blaming the decision on the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The airline, in a statement titled: “Arik Air management declares 300 staff redundant,” explained that a redundancy package would be provided for the affected workers with the help of the aviation unions.
“Arising from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to the constrained ability of the airline to complete heavy maintenance activities and return its planes to operations, stunted revenues against increasing operational costs, the management of Arik Air (In Receivership) has declared 300 staff members redundant to its current level of operations.
“The leadership of the impacted unions has been contacted to negotiate a redundancy package for the affected staff,” the statement said.
The airline added that over 50 per cent of its workforce of over 1,600 staff have been on furlough in the past six months.
Redundancy, in the world of human resources and labour relations management, is described as dismissal from one’s job, caused by an employer needing to reduce the workforce.
Arik Air, however, in a separate statement, has tendered apologies to passengers whose travel plans were disrupted by the protest carried out by the National Union of Air Transport Employees on December 3.
The protest disrupted operations in Lagos and prevented the airline from processing passengers at Murtala Muhammed Airport Domestic Terminal 1 and 2.
