The Abia State chapter of the Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) has declared that no staff in the employ of the state civil service was being presently owed by the state government, disclosing that those being owed were those in the government parastatals or agencies.

Disclosing this in Umuahia on Monday, Innocent Ekweye, the state chairman of NCSU, also said that the labour union in the state had been trying to make sure that those who were on salary arrears were paid on time. He spoke during the union’s quadrennial delegate’s conference to elect new officers held in the Abia State capital.

His words: “Well the labour union in Abia State is trying their possible best to make sure that those who are on arrears of salaries are paid; the government is not owing those in the core ministries. Those in the parastatals and non-ministerial departments are those being owed arrears of salaries and through this conference, we advise the State Government to pay them.

“In the issue of welfare of civil servants by the state government, the trade union movement goes into dialogue over that. So, it takes wisdom and understanding to handle issues between trade union and government.

“We will continue to push for workers welfare in term of incentives and good working environment.

“At least when a worker is well paid and paid as at when due, he will be able to put more efforts. In Nigeria civil service union, we contribute to the training of workers, so government should reciprocate this gesture through good working environment and when they have it, they will deliver an efficient service in the ongoing recruitment exercise,” he said.
