Executive Secretary of National Human Rights Commission, Tony Ojukwu, has appealed to staff of the organisation not to embark on industrial action scheduled to commence on July 16 over unpaid new minimum wage and investigations allowances.
He said the commission under his watch was making frantic efforts to persuade the Nigerian Government to release funds to pay the minimum wage arrears.
He disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
The statement reads, “The management team of the National Human Rights Commission has advised the staff union of the commission to jettison the proposed industrial action scheduled to commence on the 16th of July this month over the unpaid new minimum wage and investigations allowances.”
Ojukwu explained that industrial harmony rather than a strike was what was needed to further deepen the interface with government towards securing the release of the necessary funds to pay the minimum wage arrears.
