Workers of the National Assembly, under the aegis of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN, have commenced an indefinite strike over the non-payment of a backlog of salaries and allowances by the management.

PASAN issued the strike notice on Sunday via a statement issued by its Secretary-General, Hammed Awobifa.

In the statement titled, PASAN declares indefinite strike to demand full implementation of the revised conditions of service (2018), the association stated that the industrial action started after three notices to the management led by the Clerk to the National Assembly, Amos Ojo, within three weeks.

PASAN listed the items in the MoU signed by the parties to include 24 months’ arrears of minimum wage/consequential adjustment in which the management paid only 16 months, leaving a balance of eight months and 13 days, and full implementation of the conditions of service in the MOU signed in April 2021, to which its implementation had started but stopped.
