Nasarawa Express workers embark on strike

14 February 2013, 16:29

Lafia  - Workers  of Nasarawa Express on Wednesday embarked on an indefinite strike over their demand for the payment of six months salary arrears.

The Chairman of Amalgamated Union, Nasarawa Transport Workers, Mr Timothy Marku, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia that ``we have been working for the past six months without being paid our salary.

``Our children have been sent home from school and we are unable to pay our house rents due to the lack of money.’’

Marku said the union called its members out on strike not to sabotage government’s efforts but to ensure the demands of the workers were paid.

He, however, commended the workers for performing their duties during the six months they were not paid.

He said that the union would intensify the struggle to ensure that the salary arrears were paid.
