CONLESS: Ogun Assembly Workers Commence Indefinite Strike Action

The Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) in Ogun State have commenced an indefinite strike action over pay.

The PASAN members who are workers of the Ogun State House of Assembly began the strike following the state government’s failure to implement the Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLESS) passed by the National Assembly.

The union had also asked the state government to comply with the provisions of sections 10(2), 13, and 14 of the State Assembly Service Commission Law, 2018, and the Statutory Offices (State Emoluments) Amendment Law, 2018, as it affects due salary and allowances to some of our members since their respective dates of appointment.

The association had earlier given the state government a 16-day ultimatum to meet its demands.

At the expiration of the ultimatum last Thursday, the workers shut down the assembly complex but still got no response from the government.

Backing the action of its state chapter, the national body of PASAN, in a letter dated May 9 and signed by its Secretary-General, Awobifa Hammed, demanded full compliance with the provisions of the stated laws.

The union announced the decision to begin the strike through a communiqué made available to journalists after its state congress and signed by its Chairman, Ayotunde Ojediran and Secretary, David Adediran respectively.
