Why labour union shut down Kaduna State

24 March 2016, 22:19

Kaduna - Organised labour on Wednesday crippled government activities in Kaduna State as civil servants protested perceived anti-workers policies of Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led government.

This came as labour threatened a nationwide industrial action should the governor fail to rescind his alleged anti-workers’ policies in the next seven days.

Aggrieved workers, who thronged the secretariat of the Kaduna State branch of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, from all parts of the state, with several placards bearing various inscriptions, chanted anti-El-Rufai’s songs and called the governor unprintable names, regretting voting for him.

Though armed policemen waited in trucks outside the secretariat, men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, frisked anyone going through the gates for weapons, the rally was peaceful.

Addressing the workers, factional President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba said both leaders of NLC and Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC, had met and resolved that the governor must among others, within the next seven days pay the workers their 11 months’ salary arrears, or a nationwide industrial action would be declared.
