The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has rallied its suspended strike over alleged breach of Memorandum of understanding MOU signed with the Kaduna State government.
The NLC President, Dr Ayuba Wabba, said this while addressing newsmen at the end of an emergency National Executive Council NEC Meeting of the congress in Abuja yesterday.
Ayuba Wabba accused Governor Nasir El Rufai of failing to respect the MOU brokered.
He said the congress, after exhausting all avenues, including writing letters to President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, had decided to resume the strike.
NLC May 17 embarked on a five-day warning strike over sack of thousands of workers in the Public Service by Kaduna State government.
But following the Federal Government Intervention, the industrial action was suspended after three days and an MOU was signed between the parties on May 20.
According to Wabba NEC has resolved to withdraw all services and protest the neo-liberal and extreme right wing policies and this should take effect without further delay.
