Share

The aggrieved staff of the National Assembly (NASS) and National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) have blocked the main entrance into the National Assembly Complex over issues around the implementation of minimum wage.

Effectively deploying their coastal bus as a barrier and also stretching themselves out in a human shield, the workers stoutly prevented traffic in and out of the complex chanting solidarity songs.

Speaking with journalists, the PASAN leaders vowed that the strike will be total and indefinite until the NASS leadership acts to address their demands.

Acting under the umbrella of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), the workers had on Friday warned they will commence an indefinite strike on Monday, June 6, 2022, to press home their demands.

The angry workers are accusing the NASS management of reneging on a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to fully implement the revised condition of service as well as the training and re-training of staff.

They are also asking for the payment of arrears of Minimum wage, leave grants, and other allowances that are still outstanding despite repeated appeals by the Association

They have further directed all their members to stay at home from Tuesday in furtherance of the indefinite strike.

More coming soon…
