Members of the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) and the National Assembly chapters of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) will be embarking on a strike from Monday, January 10.
In a communiqué jointly signed by the chairman of NASS, Sunday Sabiyi and the vice chairman of NASC, M. A. Liman and released on Thursday, January 6, the workers said they are embarking on a strike in protest of the alleged breach of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with management on the full implementation of the new National Minimum Wage Act 2019 and the Revised Conditions of Service.
They also asked the management to pay them, with immediate effect, eight months outstanding balance of minimum wage; 2021 rent subsidy, 15 months arrears of CONPECULIAR Allowance and six months arrears of hazard allowance.
The communiqué also added;
“In addition to the MOU, the congress also demands implementation of 50% balance of CONLESS, immediate release of the year 2022 training template for staff, evidence of provision of gratuity for retiring staff.”
