NIGERIA LABOUR CONGRESS CLOSE DOWN POWER STATION AND PUBLIC SCHOOL IN KADUNA
Nigeria Labour Congress shut down Electric Power Stations, government schools and workplaces, banks, the air Port, and the train station in Kaduna as a way of a five-day notice strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
Workers from across the state, just as the leadership of all NLC member associations, are as of now accumulated in Kaduna, the state capital, to guarantee the strike’s prosperity.
Workers assembled at the NLC state office close to the state secretariat at 8 a.m., holding bulletins with various engravings against state governments, to start a convention.
The NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, is at present driving the workers and has reported that “there will be no withdrawal and no acquiescence” until the state Lead representative, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, inverts the firing of workers and pays the individuals who were sacked around four years prior.
He said that the Kaduna State government has been deceiving the general public by guaranteeing that none of the labour unions or their representatives were consulted.
The Nigeria Labour Congress reported a strike on Monday, leaving a few travellers abandoned at the Rigasa Train Station in Kaduna (NLC).
A few travellers who bought tickets online were found abandoned in Rigasa.
They were encouraged, notwithstanding, that their tickets would be substantial on the off chance that they utilized them on the day the strike was cancelled.
El-Rufai had said his administration would not bow to extort, demanding that it was not manageable to burn through84 to 96 per cent of federal allocation on salaries and personnel costs.
The state government had noticed that it had been exposed to a mission of untruths, distortion, and bogus cases that its rightsizing exercise influenced 4,000 workers and that it had quit paying the minimum wage.
