Plateau workers embark on a strike

Plateau State workers have commenced an indefinite strike over the state government’s failure to meet their demands.


The strike action was announced in a notice released by the Joint Negotiating Council (JNC), Plateau chapter, on Wednesday night in Jos, and signed by hairman, Titus Malau and Secretary, Timothy Gopep. 


They said the decision to embark on a strike followed the expiration of four days extension of the earlier seven days ultimatum given to the government after a meeting with the Head of Civil Service and the Secretary to the Government of the State.


The ultimatum and the extension were communicated in their letters dated April 19, 2023 and May 3, 2023 respectively. The statement read;


“It is evidently clear that the government has not shown enough commitment to address the issues as presented in our charter of demands before its tenure expires, as earlier promised.

“However, following a joint meeting between the JNC and Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC)/Trade Union Congress (TUC) leadership, it was resolved that an indefinite strike action be declared.

“The action is imperative since the government reneged in fulfilling its own part of the agreement despite a series of promises.

“We are, therefore, directing all our affiliate unions that strike commenced from midnight of 10th May 2023.”


All affiliate unions have been directed to adhere strictly and ensure total compliance until workers’ demands are met. The JNC warned that any contravention of the directive would attract severe penalties/sanctions.
