The National Union Of Electricity Employees declare strike over failure of government to implement their demands. They had given a 21-day ultimatum to the Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman to meet up with their demands and now the unions assistant secretary general, Anthony Sule has no choice but to declare an indefinite strike.

The strike is said to commence on Wednesday, December 12,2019; following the expiration of the 21-day ultimatum issued to the Minister of Power for the implementation of their demands.

According to This Day, the Minister failed to dialogue with the union before the time for the ultimatum expired on the midnght of Tuesday, December 10,2019.

The statement issued by the unions assistant secretary-general stated that the union had no option but to commence an indefinite strike since the Minister couldn’t dialogue with it before the expiration of the ultimatum, He said:

“The ministry of power has failed to resolve some issues affecting members of the union since 2013 when the power sector was privatised especially issues with the over 2,000 disengaged former PHCN workers and their pay off.

”According to him, some of the unresolved issues are the illegal transfer of union properties to power investors and the alleged refusal by some distribution companies (DisCos) to remit deducted contributory pension of their members of staff to pension managers. He added that the issues were contained in a memo to the minister dated November 7, 2019. It was gathered that other demands of the union include, unpaid benefits to over 2000 disengaged staff of the defunct Power Holding Company (PHCN), since 2013; underpayment of over 50,000 ex-PHCN staff; payment of half salaries to workers by DisCos, and unfair labour practices over unresolved labour issues including alleged refusal by some DisCos to remit deducted contributory pension fund to workers’ Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs).
