NAFDAC workers commence strike
Staffers of the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) have commenced strike over non-payment of their salaries.
The workers under the aegis of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) announced the industrial action on Wednesday morning.
The union had in 2021 embarked on a seven-day warning strike to demand the payment of promotion arrears for 2018 and 2019 promotions owed its members.
Speaking on Wednesday at NAFDAC office in Lagos, Auwalu Yusuf Kiyawa, state chairman of the union, said the strike begins with immediate effect.
Kiyawa said the union will not call off the strike until the workers are paid their welfare packages.
