NULGE starts 7-day strike

27 July 2013, 17:26

Lafia - The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Nasarawa State chapter, on Friday embarked on a seven-day warning strike following the state government's failure to address issues on workers' welfare.

This is contained in a statement signed by its president and secretary of NULGE in the state, Adamu Salihu-Eladoga and Koso Joseph, respectively.

The statement said the union had earlier issued a three-week ultimatum for the state government to address issues of promotion, annual increment and reinstatement of dismissed staff, among others.

"Having waited for response from the state government after its State Executive Council  meeting on Thursday, the union resolved to embark on the warning strike to press home its demands,” it stated.

It called on the staff of the councils and development areas to remain at home for seven days as the union awaits response by the state government.

"Because the state government has failed to address issues raised by the union, local government workers are compelled to embark on a seven-day warning strike with effect from Friday,’’ the statement added.

It ordered secretariats of local government and development areas to remain close throughout the period of the strike.
