Arbitrary Salary Slash is Illegal, Says NLC

Arbitrary, Salary Slash, Illegal, NLC

The Kano State branch of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has described the deduction of workers’ wages by some state governors under the guise of fighting Covid-19 as illegal and illogical.

A statement signed by the chairman, Kabiru Ado Minjibir on Friday said deducting salaries without the consent of the workers is wrong, explaining that salaries are core elements of contract and collective bargaining, adding that tampering with such without the consent of all parties amounts to illegality.

He said the hardship invoked on workers by COVID-19 demands that they preserve their income, adding that salary deduction is unthinkable.

The workers asked Kano state government led by Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to accomplish promises made to Kano workers.
