NAFDAC workers suspend strike

Striking workers of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday suspended their over two weeks old strike.

They embarked on an indefinite strike over salary structure and non-payment of productivity allowance, among other issues.

The striking workers under the aegis of Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) said the development would pave the way for a three-man committee set up by the Federal Government to look into the salary issues.

The Chairman of the Federal Area Council (MHHWU) Comrade Steven Ibe, said the workers would resume work on Monday.

Ibe said the strike is suspended to give the three-man committee room to investigate the issue and come up with appropriate salary structure.

He said the workers would go back to strike if the government’s inaugurated committees do not meet the workers’ demands.
