The Abia State Chairman of Nigerian Labor Congress, NLC, has declared indefinite strike in Abia State Polytechnic, Aba, Abia State.
The strike according to the Abia NLC chairman is following the sack of 258 staff, few weeks ago.
The Institution management had stated that the sack is followed by the implementation of the review report on verification of staff and their certificates, as approved by the state executive council in April 2019.
The institution further noted that the strike was poised to reposition Abia State Polytechnic, Aba, for greater operational efficiency.
Reacting over the strike and none payment of the affected workers, the NLC chair had last week declared that from Monday, today 30th September, 2019, there will be an indefinite strike in Abia Poly.
Addressing the newsmen, the NLC chairman, decried the sack of the workers who according to him have clean records and no query in their Curriculum Vitae (CV).
He however, said until the management pay off the affected workers their salaries and gratuities, the institution will be shot down and on strike.
