Organised labour in Taraba on Wednesday, commenced three-day warning strike over illegal salary deductions, omissions and non-payment of primary school teachers.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Solomon Obaji, Secretary, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Alhaji Tukur Taji, Secretary, Trade Union Congress (TUC), and issued to newmen in Jalingo.

The statement criticised the state government for being ‘insensitive’ to the sufferings of its workers and pensioners.

“Government has failed to address the abnormalities, ranging from underpayment of salaries, omission of genuine workers from salary vouchers, removal of approved allowances and non- payment of teachers salaries.”

When contacted, the Commissioner for Information, Mr Anthony Danburam, said that government was holding meetings with the labour leaders with a view to resolving the matter.

The workers complied with the directive of their leaders on the issue as all the offices in the state secretariat in Jalingo were locked. (NAN)
