Cross River workers ignore ‘no-work, no-pay’ directive

The Chairman of the Cross River State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Benedict Ukpepi, has ordered the striking civil servants to remain at home in defiance of the ‘no work, no pay’ directive of the government.

Ukpepi, on Wednesday, said, “Cross River workers should continue staying at home until the contentious issues are resolved.”

 The strike called by the NLC over issues bordering on the welfare of workers entered its third day on Wednesday.

The Permanent Secretary in the office of the Head of Service, Emmanuel Eke, had announced on Tuesday that the Head of Service had directed all public servants not to join the strike, saying it was illegal and ill-timed.

The circular had read, “Workers are reminded that the labour unions responsible for the affairs of the state civil/public servants, the Joint Public Service Negotiating Council and Trade Union Congress, have dissociated themselves from the industrial action.”

In the circular, workers were also told that the ‘no work, no pay’ policy was still in force and warned that any worker who failed to report for duty would not be paid.
