You must be at work from Monday FG tells workers despite the strike action declared by the union, FG tells workers to resume work from Monday
The Federal Government has warned all federal civil servants on Salary Grade Level 12 and above, and other essential workers to resume work fully on Monday.
Recall that recently, labour unions have expressed their readiness to begin nationwide industrial action and protest from Monday over the recent hike in fuel price and electricity tariff.
However this seems to have been rendered futile as the Federal Government have given an order to in a circular which read,
“Sequel to the call by the labour unions for workers to embark on industrial action from Monday, September 28, 2020, the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation wishes to inform all public servants that the Federal Government team is currently engaging with the labour unions with a view to resolving all contentious issues and avert the planned industrial action.
“Furthermore, it is important to note that there is a court injunction granted by the National Industrial Court (Suit No. NICN/ABJ/253/2020) on September 24, 2020, restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress of Nigeria from embarking on any tom of industrial action pending the hearing and determination of a motion on notice.
“Accordingly, all officers on Grade Level 12 and above and those on essential services are hereby strongly advised to be at work to perform their official duties.
“Permanent secretaries and chief executive officers are therefore enjoined to bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all concerned officers and ensure strict compliance.”
