Members of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria on Tuesday, November 14, blocked entrance into the National Assembly in compliance with the directive of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for workers to embark on strike.
Both the main gate and the annex gate into the National Assembly were locked by officials of the union making it difficult for workers who came to work to access their complex.
However, lawmakers and management staff were forced to use the gate leading to the Presidential villa to access the complex.
The staff who came to work complained of not being informed by the leadership of the union about the strike only to come to work and be told that they could not gain access because of the strike.
“You should have put this on the platform yesterday that we are joining the strike today. But you did not do that. Now, we come to work and you are telling us to go home”, some angry staff were heard complaining to some PASAN officials.
