The organised labour in Kebbi State has suspended its indefinite strike over unpaid leave grant and adjustment on the new minimum wage, among other demands.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), began the strike Tuesday, midnight, after the ultimatum given to the State government elapsed.
The state Chairman of NLC, Alhaji Halidu Alhassan, confirmed the development to NAN.
“We also suspended the strike because of the payment of gratuities. Secondly, we received assurance on the payment of leave grants.
“On Wednesday, we also received a letter from the State Head of Service for a meeting on the consequential adjustment, with a promise that government will pay annual increment and others.
“The government has met our demands on approval of the payment of gratuities and leave grants as well as the annual increment which will be done by the end of January month,” Alhassan said.
The chairman urged the State workers to be at their respective working places as from Thursday.
