On Thursday, the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) and the National Assembly chapters of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) agreed to take a break on Monday.
This was part of the resolution passed by the NASC and the NASS in their joint emergency congress.
This was in protest of the alleged breach of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with management on the full implementation of the new National Minimum Wage Act 2019 and the Revised Conditions of Service, according to a joint statement signed by the chairman of NASS, Sunday Sabiyi, and the vice chairman of NASC, M. A. Liman.
“In addition to the MOU, the congress also demands implementation of 50% balance of CONLESS, immediate release of the year 2022 training template for staff, evidence of provision of gratuity for retiring staff,” the communique read in part.
The workers demanded that the management pay them an eight-month outstanding minimum wage balance, a 2021 rent subsidy, 15 months of CONPECULIAR Allowance arrears, and six months of hazard allowance arrears, all with immediate effect.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
