The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has urged the Senate to dialogue with genuine unions on issues bordering on workers and activities in the nation’s power sector.
The call came on the heels of allegation that some individuals were already masquerading as representative of workers in the power sector at the National Assembly.
Factional President of NLC, Comrade Igwe Achese, in a statement warned the Senate and the National Assembly to stop romance with these individuals on issues that clearly have to do with the power sector without involving the leadership of the Unions within the sector.
Achese, who said the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) and the Senior Staff Association of Electricity Companies (SSAEC) remained the two unions within the power sector, said that discussion on issues bothering on the sector that does not involve these unions would be a futile.
He said: “Perhaps, the Senate may have been misled into this error by the deceitful grandstanding and posturing of these persons and group masquerading as interest parties in the power sector. We know that the Senate may have meant well and is desirous of resolving all public interest issues arising out of all sectors of the nation’s economy of which the power sector is one of them.”
