Telecom Union PTECSSAN Threatens Strike


April 02, (THEWILL) – A trade union in the telecommunication sector, the Private Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PTECSSAN) has threatened to embark on an indefinite strike from Thursday, April 4.

The union in a statement signed Tuesday, by its General Secretary, Okonu Abdullahi, alleged unresolved issues between it and some sub-contractors linked with Huawei Technologies Nigeria Ltd.

The sub-contractors include Reime Group, Allstream Energy Solutions Ltd., Uppercrest Ltd., Tyllium Nigeria Ltd. and Specific Tools and Techniques Ltd.

Abdullahi said efforts by PTECSSAN and the Ministry of Labour and Employment to resolve its dispute have failed as the companies failed to attend all conciliatory meetings.

“It is in the light of this that the leadership of the union directed its members to begin an indefinite strike effective from April 4. We implore Nigerians to bear with us during the period of the strike and the discomfort it may bring to them”, he said.

PTECSSAN is seeking among others, the “immediate recognition of the fundamental rights of the employees to freely associate with the union, immediate remittance of membership dues into the union’s account and regularisation of the employment of union members on the Huawei projects.

“Also important is the involvement of the union in the negotiation of the collective bargaining agreement for the benefit of union members, among others.”
