Mass sack: Labour threatens to stop patronage of big banks

Organised Labour has threatened to mandate member employers’ companies from paying their salary through First Bank, Zenith and Diamond Banks.
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has  therefore given the banks two weeks to recall their sacked members or lose patronage from affiliates of the Congress.

The NLC factional President, Joe Ajaero, in different letters written to the management of the banks expressed displeasure over what he described as  their unabated anti-workers stance.
According to him, the anti workers actions of the banks includes casualisation, stifled unionisation of workers, arbitrary sack of workers among others.

Despite the concerted efforts made by our sister union, National Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial institutions Employees (NUBIFIE), to make your management have a positive review of your stance, the situation is even becoming worse”, he said.
He however noted that as a responsible and one of the leading industrial unions in the country, the Congress can no longer tolerate those actions.

He said, “We cannot be passive as your bank which houses our outstanding investment turned deaf ears to the genuine concern of NUBIFIE.

We would not hesitate to ask employers in our sector to stop further payment of staff salaries through your bank if this situation remains unabated.

It is therefore pertinent that your management put a stop to your anti-workers stance forthwith if you desire our continued business relationship with you. We hope you will give positive consideration to this not later than two weeks.”
