NLC Suspends Planned Strike In Kano Over Salary Cut by chairmanawe(m): 7:58am On Apr 08
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended its earlier plans for a 3-day warning strike and peaceful protest scheduled to commence today, Thursday, over alleged plans by the state government to revert to N18,000 minimum wage.

The suspension of the planned strike was announced by the National Deputy President of the Union, Mr Najeem Yasin while briefing newsmen at the early hours of Thursday in Kano.

The labour union recalled that the State government had deducted the workers’ March salary.

According to him, the decision to suspend the strike and peaceful protest followed the agreement reached between the Kano State Government and the organised labour on Wednesday.

“The meeting was convened at the instance of Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje in person, with the representatives of the National President of the NLC, Mr Ayuba Wabba and other NLC officials.

“The state government revealed that it has no intention to go back to payment of the old N18,000 minimum wage as speculated, and reiterated its position to respect the agreement of N30,600 signed between the two parties in Dec. 2019.

“We also agreed that the March deductions in workers’ salaries at state and Local Government levels should be refunded to workers along with the April or May salaries, depending on increase of FAAC allocation for the period.

“A committee was set up between the organised labour and the government to look into all contentious issues as presented by the labour union.

“We also resolved that all machineries for the implementation of the new minimum wage of N39,600 should be put in place for the Kano State University of Science (KUST) Wudil and Yusuf Maitama Sule Universities

“The meeting also agreed that payment of monthly pension and all the entitlements of retirees should be vested under the resolution and approval of the board of trustees of Kano State Pension Fund Trustee (KSPFT) as provided by the 2006 pension law.

“Also, among the resolutions is that no worker or any leader should be punished/treated in a prejudicial/malicious manner as a result of partaking in the planned industrial action by the Kano State Government.

“Therefore, with the above resolutions, the three days industrial action scheduled to commence today, Thursday, April 8, 2021 and peaceful protest on Monday, April 12, are hereby suspended by the organised labour”, he announced.

Okay...



Most probably, they have been sorted out, as usual.

To think that these folks keep on going back and forth on the issue of minimum wage of Thirty-something thousand naira (not Cedis o) is appalling.

My heartfelt pity will continually go to salary earners—prices of things go up, but never their salaries.

This labour people are not serious.
The $ governor invited them to a meeting and issues were resolved with promises.
Hope the agreement will be met, and they won't come back to tell tales of how they were hoodwinked

Even without labour, the civil servants in Kano are ready for a big showdown in Kano. Ganduje must have received security reports that any protest by civil servants in Kano may boomerang and triggers series of events that may engulf the whole North.
