Congress, NLC, has been urged
to stop the plan to shutdown
the NIPOST headquarters.
President, Senior
Staff Association of
Communications, Transport
and Corporations, SSACTAC,
Mr. Gabriel Imafidon, Nigerian
Postal Service, NIPOST,
branch, made the appeal in
Abuja when he responded
to a letter sent to NIPOST
headquarters by NLC that it
had concluded plans to picket
the office on May 20.
According to Imafidon, the
planned shutdown is over
allegations of diversion of
check-off dues of staff from
the Nigerian Union of Postal
Telecommunication Employ,
NUPTE, NIPOST branch, to
SSACTAC coffers.
He added that the union
would prefer to dialogue with
NUPTE and for NLC to seek
clarification on labour laws
establishing it before picketing
its office.
“NLC has directed all its
industrial unions to contribute
50 persons each to join in the
“We don’t want to join issues
with them on the pages of
newspapers or the electronic
“The way they are going
about it shows elements of
high-handedness; we stand to
be corrected.
“We urge the NLC to seek
clarification within the ambit
of the law.
“We expected that the NLC,
as a sister body, would work
to ensure peace between
through dialogue, or better
still, advise NUPTE to go
to court and challenge the
management’s action.’’
Imafidon said that Grade
Level 07 officers in the civil
service were supposed to be
members of SSACTAC
