The Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE) has threatened to shut down the headquarters of Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) from Tuesday 12, January 2021.
The threaten followed the expiration of a 21-day ultimatum issued by AUPCTRE, an affiliate of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), to the commission.
In the notice signed by its General Secretary Comrade Musa Ekpo, AUPCTRE had written the Registrar-General of CAC a strike notice dated December 18, 2020, wherein it alleged anti-workers policies in the commission.
It also listed some of its grievances including lack of career progression, poor welfare and injustice against the staff.
Making its threats real, Chairman of AUPTCTRE, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Chapter, Comrade Aliyu Maradu, said:
“Arising from the above and in discharging our responsibility based on responsive and responsible Trade Union, guided by the principles of collective bargaining, due process, public service rules and strict adherence to the union and constitution of Nigeria, the union is hereby giving the management of CAC a 21 days ultimatum starting from Monday 21 December 2020 to address all the issues raised above, in order to douse already tensed industrial relations atmosphere and possibly avert a looming industrial crisis in CAC.”
The Branch Chairman of AUPTCTRE in CAC Comrade Ibrahim Makirfi added:
“The issue we have with the Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has to do with the promotion of staff of the commission.
“When he came he asked for the support of the union to ensure the goal and mandate of the commission is achieve and the union gave him 100 percent support but as you know there is no motivational factor for workers like promotion, so before he came onboard the management as at then were planning promotion exams but he told us he wants to suspends the process and reform the system.
“We believed him and a committee was put in place including union members and several vacancies where discovered but the Registrar- General unilaterally limited the vacancies and even denied many staff written promotion exams.”
