NLC Threatens Industrial Action If Governors Don’t Pay Workers’ Full Salaries

share on:

The group leader of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Joe Ajaero has on Friday delivered a stern warning to state governors owing workers to pay their salaries or face their wrath.

A statement signed by Ajaero at the end of his National Executive Council meeting in Port Harcourt, Rivers, said it is unacceptable that despite the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari, the workers have not received their salaries in full.

The statement read; “We have resolved that if non-payment of salaries and benefits continue till August, we will mobilise private sector unions for solidarity strike in affected states until arrears are paid.’’

The congress further said it would not accept the issue of economic crisis to justify why some governors and agencies deny workers their rights and privileges.
