Bauchi state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has suspended its ten days strike action embarked upon by the organised union due to the nonpayment of workers’ two months salaries.
Addressing newsmen shortly after a meeting of the organised labour to review the strike at the weekend, the state chairman of the NLC, Comrade Hashimu Muhammad Gital, said the suspension followed a letter received from the state Governor–elect, Barrister Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar, soliciting the support of the organised labour to suspend the strike in the state.
Comrade Gital explained that the suspension of the strike is a sign of honour to the Governor-elect who requested them to suspend the industrial action to enable the transition committee get essential information for the smooth take-off of the incoming administration, assuring that the matter in dispute will be among the first issues the new administration will addressed.
The NLC leaders condemned in strong terms, the denigration of the state workforce by the outgoing governor, Isa Yuguda when he rained abuses on workers of the state during a meeting between the governor and the organised labour recently, frowning at what it described as divide and rule tactics of the outgoing PDP government by paying a segment of workers (Teachers) and leaving the majority.
It commended workers in the state for their perseverance in the face of unwarranted provocation by the outgoing government in the state and called on them to resume work immediately and also give the incoming government the benefits of doubt and wait for their assumption of office to resolve the issue at stake, since the out going government is not willing to do so.
