• FG warn civil servant on strike
  •  HOME NEWS POLITICS METRO SPORT ENTERTAINMENT OPINION EDUCATION HEALTH INTERVIEW DAILY POST GHANA CONNECT WITH US      Daily Post Nigeria NEWS FG issues strong warning to civil servants over joining Labour’s strike Published   on  September 26, 2020 By  Ifreke Inyang   The Federal Government has warned civil servants from Grade Level 12 and above not to join the industrial action declared by labour unions. The warning is coming after the meeting between the federal government and organised labour, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), ended in a deadlock. The meeting was then adjourned until Monday, after both sides failed to reach an agreement over the resolution of the dispute on increase in petrol price and electricity tariffs in the country. A circular issued by Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, has now advised civil servants to be at work from Monday. The circular read: “Sequel to the call by the Labour Unions for workers to embark on industrial action from Monday, 28th September, 2020, the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF), wishes to inform all public servants that the Federal Government team is currently engaging with the Labour Unions with a view to resolving all contentious issues and avert the planned industrial action. “Furthermore, it is important to note that there is a court injunction granted by the National Industrial Court (Suit No. NICN/ABJ/253/2020) on 24th September, 2020 restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress of Nigeria from embarking on any form of industrial action pending the hearing and determination of a Motion on Notice.
