Parliamentary workers, under the auspices of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) on Monday, turned a deaf ear to pleas by the management of the National Assembly to suspend a planned industrial action by picketing the National Assembly Complex for two hours.
Led by their Chairman, Comrade Sabiyi Sunday, the protesting workers marched several times around the foyer of the National Assembly, singing solidarity songs and waving banners and placards.
While addressing the workers, Sunday said the picketing was billed to last for two hours after which the staff were to return to their various offices.
He said executives of the association would be attending an emergency meeting called by the National Assembly Service Commission to address issues raised by the workers.
Recall that the workers had notified management of the picketing and their resolve to embark on strike if their demands were not met.
