The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says all state councils where salary liabilities of up to three months exist will apply ‘no pay, no work’ rule.

NLC President Ayuba Wabba said this when he featured on the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) forum in Abuja yesterday.
“We have given instructions to all of our state councils that where there is liability of salary up to three months, they should also apply the rule of ‘no pay, no work’ it is not only ‘no work, no pay. You can also apply the rule in a reverse order of ‘no pay, no work’ and that is legitimate because the law provides that after 30 days of working, the worker is entitled to be paid. How can we encourage people that have put in their best or even those that are still in the system trying to put in their best without addressing this very fundamental issue?
“Those are the situations we have found ourselves across states and across different employments; I feel very sad with that situation but I think we will do all we can within our means and power to try to continue to protect all those workers.”
He said workers must be seen as an asset to our country instead of shifting all the challenges to the workers. (NAN)
