NEWS AGENCY OF NIGERIA
Three labour unions in the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, have issued a 21-day strike notice to implement three demands.
The unions are the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations Civil Service
Technical and Recreational Services, and the Radio, Television and Theatre Art Workers Union, RATTAWU.
In a letter conveying the strike notice to management of NAN, the unions expressed displeasure with “refusal to sign the draft Conditions of Service’’ for the agency.
They are also demanding full payment of transfer allowance to 20 members of staff, declared redundant by management, but who were later moved to Abuja and Lagos since February 1, 2017.
The unions also rejected the outcome of the uniform editorial promotion examination for Level 8 to 16.
According to the letter, the unions have resolved that since dialogue and consultation to convince management on the grievances had failed, staff will withdraw their service with effect from September 25.
