The staff had on Friday resolved to embark on a four-day warning strike beginning from Monday 17th December, 2018.
The decision was taken during an emergency Congress on Friday 14th , based on the nonchalant attitude of the management towards their plight.
A notice signed by PASAN chairman, Miss Nature Mohammed said all that National Assembly Staff should ” stay off their respective duties” from Monday, 17th – 20th December, 2018.
” The strike is to drive home our demands, which include payment of 28% salary increment as contained in the 2018 budget, promotion of staff, improvement on conditions of service, among others,”says workers.
The workers insists that 75% of the budget has been released by the federal government and yet they are yet to receive any of it.
