NLC Zamfara Chapter Expresses Concerns Over Federal-Led Labor Negotiations



The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Zamfara State Chapter has conveyed its stance regarding the ongoing negotiations between the Federal government and labor unions.

In a statement issued by Comrade Sani Haliru, the Chairperson of NLC Zamfara State Council, the union expressed its appreciation for the efforts made by the national leadership of NLC while highlighting certain concerns.

The statement acknowledged the dedication of the national leadership in these negotiations but pointed out a crucial issue. The Zamfara State Chapter of NLC emphasized that the states have not been adequately involved in the negotiations, raising questions about how this would benefit state workers.

It was stressed that the states are pivotal in the nation’s labor landscape, as they provide crucial support and serve as pillars that uphold the entire system. The statement further contended that state workers often face challenging conditions due to state governors who wield power without regard for constitutional provisions.

One of the key issues highlighted by the NLC Zamfara Chapter is the inadequate remuneration of state workers. The statement described their wages as mere stipends, which fail to meet the needs of workers in the face of prevailing economic circumstances.

While acknowledging the mood of the current situation, the NLC Zamfara Chapter stated that while strikes may not be the ideal choice, they might be the only weapon available to protect the interests of workers and the nation as a whole.

Comrade Sani Haliru, the Chairperson of NLC Zamfara State Council, emphasized that the best time to act is now when the majority of Nigerians support labor unions as the “lone voice left to uproot all evils and change the existing injustices in the nation.”

The statement concluded by urging a shift in focus toward addressing issues at the state level, rather than solely concentrating on federal negotiations. It stressed the urgency of taking action to rectify the situation for the benefit of workers and the nation
