Hope rises for Benue workers —NLC

Hope rises for civil servants in Benue State, as arrangements are on the way to pay the outstanding salaries of workers.

The state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Simon Anchaver, disclosed this to newsmen on phone on Thursday, stating that the negotiation between government and Labour yielded positive results.

 Nigerian Tribune reliably gathered that workers in the state were being owed four months salaries while tertiary institutions in the state had been on strike for about six months.

Anchaver, who expressed sadness over the non payment of workers’ salaries, said Labour had held series of meetings with the state government over the issue.

He expressed assurance that with the resolution of the joint meeting, government was expected to settle the salary arrears to workers before Christmas.

According to him, “Government have given us assurances that all the salary arrears would be cleared before the end of the year so that in 2015, we will start on a clean slate”.
