Work Resumes At NEMA As Staff, Management Agree On Terms



By Ejike Ejike, Abuja –

All is set for normal activities to resume at the offices of the National Emergency Management Agency(NEMA) as the management and its workers have agreed over some industrial issues and suspend the three days warning strike.

The NEMA management, led by the Director-General, Engr. Mustapha Yunusa Maihaja and the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria( ACSN) in a truce facilitated by  Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngigi over the weekend, agreed to pay all legitimate outstanding claims of the workers.

Other fallouts from the meeting are “that the management should work with the ASCN to conclude the process of acquiring life assurance policy for the staff within one week.

“It was also agreed that the management should come up with a compensation package for the families of the deceased staff in line with the provisions of the Public Service Rules( PSR).

“That a training Schedule using existing template should be drawn to accommodate all the staff and the training needs of all the departments within two weeks. An implementation committee comprising Director, Human Resources, Director, Special Duties and a representative of the union is to be constituted to monitor and report the level of compliance.

On workers redeployed outside Abuja by NEMA, a clause for the suspension of the strike action was for “the management to issue the letters recalling the two unit executives by 20th October, 2017.”

Also, apart from putting in place a life assurance policy for the workers, NEMA is also expected to seek approval from the Federal Government for the payment of hazard allowances to all staff.

Also, none of the workers involved in the industrial action will be punished.

The two parties agreed to the Implementation Committee comprising the ASCN, NEMA Management to be chaired by the Director, Finance and Account( DFA),  Federal Ministry of  Labour was constituted to facilitate the verification and commence payment of staff claims by Tuesday 24th October, 2017.
