The Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN, Ogun chapter, has embarked on a three – day warning strike to demand the immediate implementation of Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure, CONLESS, from the state government.
Addressing newsmen at the entrance of Ogun State House Assembly in Abeokuta, PASAN chairman, Mr Ayotunde Ojediran, said the strike became necessary to register the workers displeasure with the state government.
Mr Ojediran noted that the implementation of the CONLESS to Staffers in the state assembly and House of Assembly Service Commission would place the staffers on the same pedestal with the State Judiciary who had been enjoying Consolidated Judicial Salary Structure, CONJESS.
The PASAN Chairman explained that union had earlier issued a 21-day ultimatum to the state government to meet their demands, but nothing was done till the ultimatum lasted.
He pointed out that the state government failed to comply with the provision of the State Assembly Service Commission Law, 2018- specifically Sections 10 sub section 2, 13 and 14, and the Statutory Offices (State Emoluments) Amendment Law, 2018.
Radio Nigeria correspondent report that efforts to get the reaction from management of the assembly were unsuccessful.
