National Union of Civil Engineering Construction, Furniture and Wood Workers has embarked on a nationwide strike due to unfair labour practice by China Zhonghao Nigeria limited.
Addressing the Journalists, the Chairman Kaduna State Council, Comrade Shola Oyelayo said the company violated the labour law of the union.
Some of the labour law that the China Zhonghao Nigeria Limited violated included casualization of workers, non-compliance with health and safety standards at work place.
Others are non-implementation of condition of service, non-payment of out of station and transfer allowances and poor industrial relationship practice.
Comrade Shola Oyelayo lamented that the union had series of meeting with the management but failed to resolve their demands.
He said they embarked on indefinite strike after the expiration of 14 days ultimatum notice which the management still failed to recognise.
Comrade Shola Oyelayo further explained that the strike is nationwide and all the gates of the companies would remain closed till further notice.
Responding, the Director of China Zhonghao Nigeria Limited, Mr Liu said the company will call for an emergency meeting to address their demands.
