According to the statement released by the media aide, Olajide Oshundun, quotes the Minister saying;
“The federal government will no longer tolerate a strike that does not pass through due process. Any group that embarks on strike will be visited with section 43 of the Trade Dispute Act (TDA), Laws of the Federation of Nigeria (LFN) 2004.
It says that when a worker goes on strike, especially those on essential services, the employer can also refuse to pay compensation or wages which accompanies work done.
The due process of a strike is that social dialogue negotiation with employers should be explored first.
In the event of failure, the federal ministry of labour and employment office in the affected state or FCT should be notified and, finally, a trade dispute notice (TDN) served.”
He warned all aggrieved unions to imitate the doctors and commence driven discussions with the federal government if problems arose, as opposed to resorting to strike.
