NULGE, TUC And NUT Pull Out Of Cross River Planned Strike

3

Three labour unions in Cross River have dissociated themselves from the strike being planned by the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to commence on June 29.

The unions are Trade Union Congress (TUC), the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), and the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT).

The TUC Secretary in the state, Mr. Ken Bassey, while addressing newsmen on Saturday in Calabar, on behalf of other unions, said that the planned strike was “untimely and unfortunate.”

NLC had directed its members to stay away from work, starting from June 29 until their demands were met.

The Congress had demanded the payment of outstanding gratuities to both local and state governments’ retirees from 2014 to date as well as the implementation of the new minimum wage.

The NLC also demanded the implementation of promotion for both local and state workers and the immediate return of names of workers allegedly illegally removed from the state payroll, among others.
