National leaders of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, have said organized labor and its allies will from Monday, January, 27, shut Abia State over several unresolved issues, including non-implementation of the N30,000 national minimum wage, five years after it was signed into law by President Muhammad Buhari.
NLC is also angry over no less than six months’ salary and pension arrears owed core civil servants and over 30 months’ salary and pension arrears to other public workers in the state.
President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, told newsmen that every mobilization for the commencement of the action has been done.
It could be recalled that on February 13, NLC wrote to the stage government issuing a 14-day ultimatum to resolve pending industrial issues or face unrest.
