Organised labour in Kogi State, made up of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Joint Negotiating Council (JNC) are worried over the non-payment of workers’ salary and other issues affecting welfare of its members.

The group in a communique issued in Lokoja after its meeting, called on the state government to use the allocation it got for the month of February 2016 to offset the outstanding salaries for the month of December, 2015.

The communiqué, which was jointly signed by NLC Chairman, Onuh Edoka; TUC Chairman, Ojo Ranti Matthew; and JNC Chairman, Aaron Akeji, condemned in strong terms, the payment of salary in piecemeal, adding that the payment of salaries for months of October and November 2015 spanned three weeks for each month.
