All Nigeria Latest News reports that organized labour is pleased with the current level of worker compliance in the ongoing strike declared by both the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria and the Nigeria Labour Congress.
Comrade Tommy Okon, the Deputy President of TUC who spearheaded the monitoring team of the two labour centres dispatched to monitor and enforce compliance disclosed this to newsmen.
He said, “We are very much happy about the level of compliance so far. Despite the fact that many workers got the notice from their unions very late yesterday, I can authoritatively tell you the compliance today was massive and there will be 100% compliance tomorrow.
“In the States, the level of compliance is about 80 percent. Just a few pockets of non compliance in some but I can assure you that by tomorrow there will be more impact.
“Here in FCT, a lot of government offices got the directive from their unions very late and some this morning, and that hindered the expected compliance. Am sure that by tomorrow people will not be in the offices.
“Note also that a slot of workers who did not get the notice earlier and had gone to work today are regretting wasting their money on transportation and time to go to the offices especially as we ensured no working activity took place.
“By tomorrow there will be total compliance. I am saying this based on the reports from our enforcement teams who we sent out to monitor and enforce compliance.”
