Ebonyi Workers Embark on Indefinite Strike

Ebonyi State workers have embarked on an indefinite strike with effect from today to press home their demand for payment of September 2011 salaries withheld by the government and the implementation of 2011 minimum wage.

The Chairman of Joint Public Service Negotiating Council (JPSNC) in the state, Ikechukwu Nwafor, said the union had earlier on December 23, 2014 given the state government 21-day ultimatum after which it embarked on another three-day warning strike on January 21, 2015 to meet their demands but to no avail.

He said: “Following Ebonyi State Government’s unwillingness to meet with the demands of the organized labour with respect to implementation of the submitted report of the committee that revisited the table of the Ebonyi state Civil/Public Salary Structure and September 2011 withheld salaries, the organized labour in Ebonyi State hereby declares an indefinite strike effective from Tuesday, March 10, 2015.”
