Nasarawa: Organized Labour Suspends Strike

The organised Labour in Nasarawa State has called off its industrial action after several months.

The decision was taken in consideration of the ongoing intervention of the minister of Labour and employment, in conjunction with the federal Labour union and the National Trade Union Congress.

A communique jointly signed by the state chairmen of both the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress, Comrade Abdulahi M. Adeka and Comrade Danladi Sabo Namo, respectively, said that the state government and the Labour unions had agreed to revert to the old salary structure, and that payment for the months of May and June had already commenced.

The communique added that the salaries for the months of July and August would be addressed in the course of discussions at the tripartite committee.

In this regards, the organised Labour called on all workers to resume work Wednesday, 14th September, 2016.

It assured its workers that no victimization of any kind would be meted out to them as a result of embarking on the industrial action.

Workers in Nasarawa State have been on strike since 4th of July 2016 to protest the government’s new salary structure.

While it has agreed to pay the remaining balance for the months of May and June, the government insists on “no work no pay” rule for the months of July and August.
