Government activities came to a halt yesterday in Plateau state as civil servants shunned their duty posts in compliance of the strike directive issued by the Chairman, Nigerian Labour congress in the state, Jubril Bancir.
Our correspondent who visited most state government owned establishments observed that activities came to a standstill as workers did not turn out.
A visit to the state secretariat revealed that the gates were all locked and there was full compliance.
It could be recalled that the Plateau state NLC had recently directed all its affiliate unions and workers to commence mobilisation for a strike at expiration of its ultimatum to the state government which expired on Monday.
Jibrin Bancir the state chairman gave the directive while briefing newsmen recently on the occasion of the 2015 workers day.
He had said Labour had negotiated for a long time with the state government for the Peaceful resolution of their disputes but without success.
Bancir said workers had several issues that had consistently lingered over the past years in spite of our struggles.
He had listed some of the issues to include outstanding arrears of Minimum wage, nonpayment of salaries and non release of promotion of staff.
