Ekiti NULGE pulls out of NLC, rejects strike suspension

28 June 2016, 20:00

Ekiti - The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees in Ekiti State has suspended its affiliation indefinitely with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Punch reports.

The NULGE executives directed its members in Efon Alaye Local Government to continue with the strike until the harassment and assaults on workers by political thugs stopped after an emergency in Ado Ekiti.

The union said, henceforth, it would not be part of all the programmes and activities of the NLC.

The union in a communique signed by its state Chairman, Bunmi Ajimoko, and Secretary, Muyiwa Cole, said it was forced to take the hard decision after reviewing “the process leading to the abrupt and controversial suspension of the popular workers’ action.”

The NLC had on Friday according to News24 suspended the 4 week old strike after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the state government.

The organised labour in the state, had after a meeting with the government’s representatives last Friday suspended the strike embarked upon by workers on May 25, 2016 over five months salaries owed them by the state government.

The resumption was however, marred by low turn out as only few workers reported at their offices on Monday.
