The National Assembly and National Assembly Service Commission employees have blocked the main entrance to the National Assembly Complex in protest of unpaid allowances and arrears.
Workers affiliated with the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) announced on Friday, June 3, that an indefinite strike will begin on Monday, June 6.
They accused the National Assembly’s management of breaking a Memorandum of Understanding to completely implement the amended conditions of employment, as well as employee training and retraining.
They also want their arrears of minimum wage, leave grant, and other allowances paid.
Protesting today, the workers blocked the gate with their bus and human shield.
They vowed that the strike will be total and indefinite, according to The Nation.
