EMEKA_WOGU-LabourThe Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday picketed the Jos Electricity Distribution Company over alleged de-unionisation of its workers.

The state NLC Chairman, Mr. Jibril Bancir, said in Jos that the congress picketed the company because it reneged on its earlier agreement with the management over the workers.

Bancir said that the congress had appealed to the company’s management not to tamper with the status quo until all staff issues were amicably settled.

He said the picketing would last for a week in the first instance.

Bancir said that the picketing would continue pending the outcome of the meeting between the union, the company and the state Commissioner of Police, Chris Alakpe.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that other issues being contested included casualisation and under-payment of workers.

Others are arbitrary increase of electricity tariff, sacking of union leaders after legitimate struggle for workers’ rights and non-metering of electricity customers. (NAN)
