Kiyawa said the union will not call off the strike until the workers are paid their welfare packages.

According to a source, only the Lagos and southern part of the union embarked on the strike.

The source said though the entire union agrees on the matter of welfare package, the Abuja and northern axis of the union disagree on the strike as the method to achieving their demands because they believe it is premature.

Recall, in 2021, the union also embarked on strike over the backlog of unpaid financial claims, poor work environment, lack of staff bus to ease transportation difficulties, and discriminatory payment of COVID-19 palliative.
