The government must pay the remainder of their salaries for February and March, according to Plateau State civil servants who have set their terms for ending the continuing strike.
On Wednesday in Jos, the state capital, Mr. Eugene Manji, the state chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress, or NLC, said this.
As a result of the government’s refusal to comply with their requests for wage payment and other benefits, the civil servants went on an indefinite strike on May 11.
Manji, though, asserted that the industrial action would end once employees began getting their agreed-upon wages.
“It eventually agreed to pay, but not until the verification of the actual civil service staff strength,” Manji said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
“We will meet with the workers and discuss the prospect of stopping the strike if, following the verification, we find that the employer is willing and committed to paying.
“We are keeping an eye on the screening, which got underway on Tuesday, and we’ll call a meeting if our members start getting bank credit alerts as the government promised.”
