The Plateau state Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), have given the state government an ultimatum to meet the full implementation of all their demands or prepare for an indefinite strike.
The state NLC chairman, Jibrin Bancir, has directed all its affiliate unions and workers to commence mobilisation for a strike at the expiration of its ultimatum to the state government on May 4.
According to Bancir, the directive became necessary following the breakdown of peaceful negotiations with the state government regarding the resolution of workers disputes.
He said: “It is apparent that we must take the last action so that we will not continually be subjected to slavery by the government of Dr. Jonah Jang.
“Plateau workers will not be celebrating the May Day with our colleagues all over the world because of bad governance and inhuman treatment that we have been subjected to over the years by the Jang administration.”
In the same vein, workers in Borno state have also urged the state government to give priority to the demands of workers.
