The Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) has suspended its strike for forty–five days to allow the implementation of the Memorandum of Action.
In a statement on Friday jointly signed by its National President, Comrade Mohammed Usman and Ag. Secretary-General, Comrade Ikechukwu Alaribe, PASAN directed its members to resume work on Monday.
It commended President Muhammadu Buhari, his Chief of Staff, Minister of Labour and Employment, the Presidential Implementation Committee on the Implementation of Financial Autonomy at the state level, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and all other parties who facilitated the peaceful resolution of the strike action via an MOA.
The statement reads: “That after an appraisal of the Nationwide Industrial Strike Action so far and consideration of calls from well-meaning institutions and members of the general public to suspend the strike action that PASAN do hereby suspend the Nationwide Industrial Strike Action to facilitate the passage of necessary legislations as contained in the (MOA).
The strike action is only suspended for 45 days window starting from Monday 14″ of June, 2021 to 29” of July, 2021.
“The Union frowns at the reported unnecessary intimidation and victimization of members during a lawful industrial strike action.
We shall no longer tolerate any further victimization of members due to their participation in the strike action as directed by the Union and granted by the extant Labour Laws.”
