Promotion Arrears: Labour Spoils For War With FG


Organised Labour under the aegis of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) yesterday said it has concluded plans to shut down activities of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) at the federal level if the government does not takes urgent steps to pay promotion arrears.
The ASCSN Secretary-General, Comrade Alade Bashir Lawal who dangled the axe while briefing journalists in Lagos, listed other payment they want government to pay to include outstanding salaries and other allowances owed Federal Public Servants. Lawal regretted that more than one year after the promotion arrears were computed by a Presidential Committee and Report submitted to the Presidency, the Government had delayed the payment.
“The issue of unpaid entitlements of workers have remained unattended to for some years now and was indeed brought to the attention of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buahri, sometimes ago for necessary action.
“Thereafter, a circular was issued by the office of the head of the civil service of the federation directing all MDAs to compile the total sum involved in respect of the unpaid entitlements of their employees for settlements,” the union added.
