Nasarawa NLC suspends strike

09 January 2014, 19:36

Lafia - The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Nasarawa State Chapter, on Thursday announced the suspension of the indefinite strike it declared over the alleged failure by government to address workers’ welfare issues.

A statement signed by Sule Odeh-Usman and Jacob Makama, Chairman and Secretary of the NLC's joint negotiating team, and Dominic Bako, the state's Head of Service, said that the suspension followed an agreement reached on Wednesday after NLC met with the state government.

The statement added that government had agreed to implement workers' demands, especially with respect to prompt promotion from Jan. 2014.

It added that all pending annual increments due to workers would be processed and paid immediately.

Meanwhile, a nine-man committee, chaired by Hamza Ilayo, the Commissioner of Information, has been setup to workout modalities for the implementation of the agreement reached.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), correspondent, who visited some government offices in Lafia on Thursday, observed that workers had reported to their offices and were busy with their normal duties.

NAN reports that the strike, which was started on Monday, lasted for three days.
