Workers defy management, picket National Assembly


Workers under the auspices of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) yesterday picketed the National Assembly Complex for two hours.

The picketing followed the failure of the management to persuade the workers to suspend the action.

The workers had notified the management of their plan to picket the complex and embark on strike, if their demands were not met.

Led by their chairman, Sabiyi Sunday, the protesting workers marched round the foyer of the National Assembly, chanting solidarity songs and wielding banners and placards.

Addressing the workers, Sunday said the picketing was billed to last two hours after which the workers would return to their offices.

The union leader said the executive of the association would attend an emergency meeting called by the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) to address the issues the workers had raised.

He said the association would also picket the NASC today.
