Nigeria Labour Congress has issued a one week ultimatum to Bauchi State Government to address the anomalies that left no fewer than 10,000 workers without salary.

It said that if the government failed to address the issue within the period the union will not be able to guarantee industrial harmony in the state.

This was contained in a statement issued by the state NLC Chairman Danjuma Saleh and made available to newsmen in Bauchi.

According to him, no fewer than 10,000 workers in seven ministries and pararstatals were unable to access their July salaries.

He said the NLC viewed the situation as an attempt to retrench workers systematically.

Mr Saleh added that 116 workers of Toro and Bogoro local government areas were also denied April salaries in spite of several appeals from the union, while hazard allowance of some essential staff of the state water board and Gubi Dam were removed without recourse to existing circulars.

The chairman said that NLC was also demanding for immediate resolution of all pending cases affecting Head of Schools, Education Secretaries and Local Government Treasurers.
