Ministere warns against slash in salaries, hours of work

By Ucag - 970 days ago

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has warned state governors against reduction in remunerations and hours of work of workers. In a statement issued by Mr Samuel Olowokere, Deputy Director Press in the ministry, Ngige said the warning was necessary to restore industrial harmony and forestall breakdown of law and order.


He said the warning followed protracted industrial crisis involving the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Nasarawa State Government. The minister said the step was pursuant to the powers invested on him by section 5(1) and (2) of the Trade Dispute Act, Laws of Nigeria, 2004. He said this was also predicated on a letter to the him by Gov. Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State for labour conciliation by the ministry.


The minister said all parties had been invited for a crucial meeting on Wednesday by 2 p.m. at the Ministry of labour. He said “sequel to this, I hereby direct the unions to suspend the proposed picketing of government offices and demonstrations. “I enjoin all parties to maintain the status quo ante pending the outcome of the meeting intended to resolve the issues in dispute.
