Leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), South-West/South-South Zones, has given Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum within which it should implement all agreements reached with National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) and the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC).
Rising from its meeting with the two unions of electricity workers in Akure on Wednesday evening, the NLC leadership, including Kwara, Kogi and Edo States, berated the Federal Government over the poor treatment being meted out to the present staff and disengaged staff in the power sector.
Reading the communiqué of the meeting, the NLC Chairman, Ondo State, Comrade Bosede Daramola, condemned the alleged attempt by government and the electricity investors to disunionize workers in the service of the companies.
The NLC told the Federal Government to prepare for the unexpected if it fails to honour its agreement which it signed with the electricity workers on January 13, 2014 and that it should fulfil its promise as contained in the resolutions reached at the conciliatory meeting held in the office of the Hon. Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu.
