The Kaduna State Chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) urge the state government to address all problems associated with contributory pension scheme.
They also advised that for a successful implementation of the government`s reform plan, a strong committee including stakeholders should be constituted with clear mandate and objectives.
This was urge contained in a statement jointly signed by the NLC Chairman, Comrade Adamu Ango and TUC Chairman, Comrade Shehu Mohammed, yesterday, in Kaduna.
The statement  said  that the implementation of the reform by the Kaduna State Government should be done in phases to address issues that may arise in the course of executing the reforms programme.
The statement read: “The government should as a matter of priority settle all outstanding arrears of salaries and entitlement of retirees before embarking on the reform.
“Without prejudice to the existing norms , we wish to advise that ageing in the service should be by the provision as contained in the statute books i.e 35 years in service and or 60 years of age and that should be maintained for uniformity with the civil service of the federation.
“All problems associated with the contributory pension scheme should be addressed e.g accrual valuation, reconciliation of remittance of employee/employer and the Group Life Insurance etc.
“We wish to sincerely recommend that officers that  have reached or soon to reach the retirement age/years of  service be allowed to indicate their willingness to exit the service while government should make their entitlement ready for collection within the Mandatory three months of notice in other to achieve a win-win situation.”‎
