The staff union of the Investment and Securities Tribunal (IST) yesterday suspended their one day warning strike to register their grievances against the chairman and the chief registrar.
According to Albert Otesile, the labour relations committee chairman of the IST who disclosed this yesterday in Abuja, said the strike was as a result of discriminatory and selective approval and payment of some staff allowances, non-adherence to the public procurement Act 2007 and due process.
He added that the infractions include intimidation and victimization of some staff in high handedness and impunity at the tribunal.
Otesile said, he waded into the matter and called the union leaders to a meeting and requested for a week to look into the issue raised.
He further said that the staff conceded to the union idea and called- off the warning strike for discussion to resume.
