Kebbi TUC urges Bagudu not to delay salary adjustments for civil servants
The executive council of Kebbi State chapter of Trade Union Congress (TUC) had expressed concern over the delay and non-implementation of consequential adjustments salary charts, which was negotiated with organised labour and approved by the federal government.
In a communiqué and signed by its state secretary, Musa Mohammed, TUC said it was worried over the non-constitution and inauguration of the state committee to negotiate with organized labour on the consequential adjustments for workers on Grade Levels 07 and above.
The communiqué, which was made available to newsmen, yesterday, in Birnin-Kebbi recalled that many states in the federation had either concluded negotiation or constituted and inaugurated the committee for negotiation on the adjustments, adding: “The situation in Kebbi State is disturbing and worrisome and the implication is that civil servants on grade levels 07 and above are in a state of despair and complete despondency as a result of the increase on the Value Added Tax (VAT) without correspondence increase on their take-home pay.”
Mohammed, while commending Governor Atiku Bagudu for the approval of the N30, 000 minimum wage to workers on Grade Levels 01 to 06 in the state since September last year, called on the government as a matter of urgency and to avert future industrial disharmony, constitute and inaugurate the committee to negotiate the consequential adjustments without any further delay.
