NLC shuts down Jos Electricity Distribution for over billing, treatment of staff

The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, on Monday morning 18th Apiril, shut down the Jos Electricity Distribution head office for non compliance to the laid down Labour guidelines.

National Vice President, Comrade Musa Ayisa said the shut down of Jos Electricity Distribution (JED) headquarters became necessary when the company refused to work according to the Labour Law in the area of conditions of service.

“If the owners of this company are not ready to comply with the NLC guidelines such as workers welfare and hazard of the staff, we shall impose sanction on them.

The National Vice President, disclosed in Jos, while addressing workers during a protest of current low voltage and indiscriminate increase of electricity billing system and poor remuneration of the staff .

Ayisa further explained that, “the disparity of salary payment amongst workers of this organization has become a great concern, hence the need for us to intervene because of their plight.

The NLC leadership is complaining about the problem of poor distribution that has affected small scale businesses and household consumption in the country.

Also speaking, the Assistant National Secretary General, NUEE, Comrade Sule Anthony John, said, the protest was to appeal to the federal government to reverse the sale of PHCN to individuals who are exploiting citizens of Nigeria.

However, the protesters were seen carrying placards with inscriptions: “Privatization is evil reverse”, “NUEE say no to sack of workers without salary”, “disparity of salary is evil”, “Workers have families, dependants”, “JED are exploiting us”, among others.

Way To Go!

Please, visit EEDC grin

I used around #3,300 worth of power for six months, only for me to go for renewal, bought #4,400 worth of power and was charged #3,750 as service charge for the five months that elapsed since I last recharged. The goats then gave me only about #600 worth of electricity. Can you believe that? Can you f**king believe that? angry

Now I don't only pay my bills. I also have to pay for their unreliability
