The Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government Owned Companies (SSASCGOC) has advised the Federal Government to check excessive job losses especially in rail sector due to concession.
The President General of the union, Comrade Mohammed Yunusa, who said the action was being carried out under the guise of concession, said Nigerian workers contributed immensely to the glorious performance of the rail sector, until it started having problem in 1984, due to successive administrations’ failures to manage it well. He said, “Nobody should attempt to discredit staff of the NRC just because of the failure of successive governments and its managers in NRC.
To this end, we make bold to say that we shall resist any form of reform aimed at discrediting and sending staff of NRC into the labour market, under whatever guise be it concession, franchising or public private partnership.”
He added that SSASCGOC would resist any concession arrangement that leads to job loss either in the Nigerian railway corporation or any other public corporation in Nigeria.
“Government has business in business, especially when it is social-oriented in nature and therefore government should sit –up with SSASCGOC and its allies so that we can jointly come up with workable solutions for the rail to roll into glory,” he said.
