nigeria labour congress

HOMELAND NEWS has learnt that the Nigeria Labour Congress is set to take action in response to months of unpaid salaries by some states in the federation.

By Monday, May 25, workers in some state will join those in Plateau who had begun an indefinite strike to demand payment of their outstanding salaries.

General Secretary of the Union, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, told newsmen that the congress had deployed task force teams to various geo-political zones of the country to verify the level of cooperation by the affected state governments.   

Some of the state affected have are up-to-date with salaries but are owing pension payment running into months.

While the workers and their union threaten to shut down the states, Governors of the affected state blame a fall in revenue accruable from the Federal Government for their inability to meet with such obligation.

Osun leads the list of states owing workers for several months. Others include Ogun, Ondo, Oyo, Plateau, Rivers, Bauchi, Benue, Abia, Cross River, Katsina, Kano, Abia, Akwa Ibom, Zamfara, Kogi, Jigawa,Plateau and Imo.
