Staffs of the Rivers House of Assembly have served notice to the Speaker that they will embark on strike from January 12 in protest over unpaid accumulated allowances of four years

The staff had earlier in December 2020 notified the leadership of the house of their grievances and plan to embark on industrial action if their appeals were not addressed, but nothing was done.

In the letter which was addressed to the Speaker of the Rivers House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Ikuinyi-Owaji Ibani, the Union identified the unpaid entitlements to include Outfit and Committee Allowances for the year 2013, 2014, 2019, and 2020, restoration of Legislative Duty Allowances, and Implementation of Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLSS).

In addition, the Union also demanded the revival of staff training and welfare schemes and the Improvement of deplorable Staff welfare conditions and working environment.

“The Union least expect that a vibrant State like Rivers that is respected amongst the league of states should allow these issues linger for this long”.

“We hereby issue a final one week (7 days) ultimatum for these issues to be urgently addressed or the Union will be left with no other option than to embark on an indefinite Industrial Strike.
