The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has urged the Federal Government to respect the Collective Bargaining Agreements entered into with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and other unions in the tertiary institutions in the country.
The NLC President, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, made the call in the 2022 Easter message to workers and Nigerians on Monday in Abuja.
According to him, millions of Nigerian university students, especially those attending public citadels of higher learning, are celebrating Easter outside the precincts of their campuses.
Wabba also noted that many workers in Nigeria are yet to enjoy the national minimum wage almost four years after it was signed into law, noting that Cross River, Taraba and Zamfara are the states yet to implement the national minimum wage.
The NLC president also said that Nigerian pensioners are not spared as many of them are denied their gratuity and pension arrears.
