BREAKING : C'River Govt to invoke "no work, no-pay" policy against striking workers

Gov. Ben Ayade
The Cross River State government has threatened to invoke a no work, no pay policy against workers of the Ministry of Justice following plans by the Law Officers Association of Nigeria ( LOAN) to embark on strike on Monday, July 2.

This was contained in a statement approved by the Attorney General of the state and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Joe Abang and issued by Governor Ben Ayade Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita.

The statement maintained that the issue of salary harmonization argued by LOAN was captured in the 2018 budget and was currently handled by the Head of Service (HOS), Barr. Ekpenyong Henshaw and the  state Accountant General, Joseph Adie.

The statement added that LOAN is neither a member of the Nigeria Labour Congress nor Trades Union Congress therefore cannot declare strike against a "Governor who has performed creditably well"

"It has come to my Notice that a certain group of people under the agies of Law Officers Association of Nigeria ( LOAN) are planning on shutting down the ministry of justice on Monday  the 2nd of July 2018.

They claim that the Government of CRS has approved but not implemented the harmonization of their salaries with that of Judicial Officers in the Magistrate cadre.

This issue is in the 2018 Budget and presently being handled by the HOS Barr Ekpenyong Henshaw and the Accountant General of CRS. 

The SA Labour to the Governor has said this group is not part of NLC and TUC and therefore cannot declare a strike against a Governor who has performed creditably well!

We therefore urge the general public and the service to ignore any body claiming to or purporting to be in support of this group. Our Digital Governor remains open to negotiations in this respect. 

But the Attorney General and commissioner for justice Cross River State will not hesitate to implement the " No work No pay policy" of the Federal government should the need arise", the statement reads.
