The National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE has suspended its strike action which started on Wednesday.
The Union’s General Secretary Joe Ajaero, in a statement, said this followed the agreement reached between the union and representatives of the Federal Government this morning, on all the issues in contention.
The statement urged its members to return to their duty posts while the union monitors the implementation of these agreements. It also warned that if the agreements are not implemented, the union would not hesitate to resume action.
Ajaero, had, in a statement, accused the Bureau of Public Enterprise of failing to address and pay up over two thousand disengaged workers of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN since 2013.
He alleged underpayment of severance of over 50 thousand former PHCN staff and illegal transfer of schools built by the union to investors.
The General Secretary also accused GENCOs of declining to
sign Condition of Service and rules of engagement, adding that some DISCOs were
also denying the retirement benefits of some workers.
