Two Labour Leaders Die in Jos Auto Crash

Two Labour Leaders Die in Jos Auto Crash

Two members of the striking National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) died on Wednesday in an auto crash while of their way to Langtang from Jos after participating in a workers demonstration.

NULGE has been on a strike since June this year following the inability of the state government to implement the 100 percent national minimum wage at that tier of government.

NLC Chairman, Mr. Jibrin Bancir, at a press briefing in Jos on Wednesday gave the names of the labour leaders as Messrs Nimel Vonjen and Nanmwa Mamshing, both of the Primary Health Care Development and Gazum Traditional Council respectively.

In a text read by the Secretary, Richard Gbawuan, Bancir said three other people sustained injuries in the accident and are being treated in an undisclosed hospital.

The chairman said that the losses were prices labour had to pay for their just struggle.

Also, labour leaders will be meeting in Abuja on Thursday on the December 20 ultimatum given by the Nigeria Labour Congress to Governor Jonah Jang to resolve the wage dispute or face a national strike.
