ORGANISED labour in Nasarawa State has directed its affiliates to ensure total compliance with the nationwide strike action from Wednesday, Nov. 15.
The national headquarters of the organised labour had directed all state councils to commence an indefinite strike over the brutalisation of Mr Joe Ajaero, National President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in Imo recently.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that leaders of NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC) gave the directive for all affiliates to withdraw their services during an emergency meeting on Tuesday in Lafia.
Comrade Ayuba Okor, Chairman of NLC and his TUC counterpart, Mohammed Doma, said that the decision was in compliance with the directive from their national headquarters.
They also said that monitoring and enforcement teams were already activated and would go round offices by Wednesday to ensure total shutdown.
Chairmen of some of the affiliate unions, Salihu Alkali of Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ) and Salihu Adamu of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), pledged their commitment to comply with the directive of the National Headquarters of the union.
NAN correspondent who visited Ministries, Departments and Agencies in the state observed that there was partial compliance with the strike as workers offered skeletal services.
Some of the workers who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that their leaders in the state were yet to direct them to comply. (NAN).
