NLC names task force on workers’ pay

NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, on Wednesday constituted various committees to help handle a number of issues bordering on the welfare of the workers and cohesion of the movement.

Key among the committees constituted during the NLC’s Central Working Committee meeting in Abuja included a task force on unpaid workers’ salaries mandated to ensure that the state governors paid workers all outstanding arrears of salaries before vacating office.

A committee of experts was also constituted to formulate a cogent and coherent response to the emerging issues in the economy as well as advance an alternative development agenda that addresses workers concerns.

Also constituted was a committee on the controversial NLC-Kriston-Lally Housing Project, mandated to liaise with the relevant authorities to fast-track the process of refunds to affected subscribers.

Besides, the first General Secretary of NLC, Aliyu Dangiwa, was named formally as Chairman of the Reconciliation Committee charged with the responsibility of reconciling and returning to the fold all aggrieved parties in the recently concluded 11th Delegates Conference.

A communique at the end of the meeting signed by the new President, Ayuba Wabba, and General Secretary, Peter Ozo-Eson, also unfolded plans by the Congress to picket the office of the Post Master General of the Federation for alleged unlawful diversion of the check-off dues of members of the National Union of Posts and Telecommunication Employees to another union.

The Congress accused the Post Master General of violating the provisions of the Trade Union Laws and the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which guarantees freedom of association;

While congratulating the new leadership of the Congress, the meeting urged members not to succumb to distractions, but to extend a hand of fellowship to the aggrieved parties that lost during the last Delegates Conference.

An 11-member May-Day Committee was set up to prepare, facilitate and execute the May Day celebration, while members were urged to go out en mass on Saturday and perform their civic duties by voting and defending their votes in the forthcoming general elections.
