The National Union of Electricity Employees(NUEE) has suspended its nationwide strike.
Eko Electricity Distribution Company made this known via its Twitter handle, @EKEDP, on Thursday.
“Dear customer, National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) has suspended its strike. Our offices & payment channels are open for business. Thank you for your patience & understanding,” the tweet said.
President of NUEE, Joe Ajaero, had, in a statement on Wednesday, accused the Bureau of Public Enterprise of failing to address and pay up over 2,000 disengaged workers of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria since 2013.
Ajaero alleged underpayment of severance of over 50,000 ex-PHCN staff and illegal transfer of schools built by the union to investors.
He also accused Generating Companies (GENCOs) of refusing to sign condition of service and rules of engagement, adding that some Distribution Companies(DISCOs) were also denying the retirement benefits of some electricity workers.
