The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, (ASCSN), an affiliate of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), has threatened to shutdown operations in all offices of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) for three days.
The association accused the NEMA management of refusal to implement hazard allowance and life insurance, several months of unpaid overtime and travel allowances.
The threat by the senior civil servants is coming two weeks after it threatened to down tools nationwide over billions of unpaid promotion allowances, which compelled the federal government to begin immediate payment to apprehend the industrial action
ASCSN Chairman, Isaac Ojemhenke, who briefed newsmen in Abuja on Monday said a 21-day ultimatum issued and another 7-day notice which were issued expires on Tuesday, and there is no invitation by NEMA management for talks.
The Secretary General said notices had been sent to President Muhammad Buhari, the National Assembly, the Head of Civil Service of the Federation and the Minister of Labour and Employment.
Others also notified were the Minister of Defence, the Department of State Service, the Inspector General of Police, the TUC President and the Director General of NEMA.
