NAFDAC (National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control) has finally called-off their over two weeks old strike. The workers 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, adding that the strike was suspended to give the three-man committee room to investigate the issue and come up with appropriate salary structure. He, however, noted that the workers would go back to strike if the government’s inaugurated committees do not meet the workers’ demands.
