The ongoing strike action by local government workers on the Plateau may further be compounded by a fresh threat by the Joint Union of Plateau State Owned Tertiary Institution Workers, who have demanded for the payment of the arrear salaries owed them by the state or resume strike which they had suspended last year.
Addressing the press on Tuesday, at the Jos campus of the state Polytechnic, the union Chairman, Mr. Victor Dawurung said the union did not at any time accept the ‘no work, no pay’ imposed on it by the state government.
Dawurung said “we want to make it categorically clear that have not accepted the imposition of ‘no work, no pay’, we have only been pursuing the matter diplomatically, but unfortunately, we have become a reference point of the imposition of the draconian rule.”
