NLC Nasarawa branch begins indefinite strike over salary demands 

The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, in Nasarawa state commenced an indefinite strike this morning  following  the state  government’s inability to meet their demands. The workers had earlier given the state government up till May11, 2017 to meet their demands or face an industrial action.

The state Secretary of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Mohammed Naibi said  the strike became  imperative after the expiration of the ultimatum given to the state government. 

In his words, 'In  the past six years, all the civil servants in the state  had stagnated with  no promotion and  annual increment. Pensioners were  also not paid their full entitlements as  and when due;  these are some of our grievances'.

The state government has however threatened to sanction workers who fail to report to their duty posts. Thomas Ogiri, the state’s  Head of  Service, called on workers to disregard the strike directive, saying the NLC  was in disarray.
He directed permanent secretaries and chief executives of commissions, boards and parastatal, and agencies  to take attendance of their staff saying that failure to comply with the directive would attract punishment while absenteeism would not be condoned.
