NLC Raises Concern Over Casualisation Of Staff In Private Sectors In Kano

By Abubakar Haruna Galadanchi || Kano State

The Nigerian Labour Congress Kano chapter, has raised concern over the casualisation of workers and refusal by some employers in the private sector to allow unions in their establishment.

Kano state Chairman Comerade Kabiru Ado Minjibir, disclosed this to Newsen in his office today, said that the congress would soon take action on these issues.

He said that the union had received series of complaints from workers in some private organisations in the state on this trend and even included media stations.

We have come to the realisation that some of the private organisations in the state do not engage permanent staff. And such action deny the workers some of their rights and benefits after working for many years. Not having Unions also denies workers the avenue to express their grievances.

As a result of the complaints received, we have decided to set up a 23-man committee to be headed by Comrade Wada Waziri to address the issues once and for all, Minjibir said.

He said that the committee would liaise with the private sector unions to identify all companies and organisations that had no unions and ensure they do so.

Minjibir added that necessary measures would be taken against any private organization that failed to cooperate with the committee.
