Registration Activities Pick Up As CAC Staff End Strike
The staff of Corporate Affairs Commission, downed their tools a week ago to protest non-payment of entitlements.
But it appears they have been appeased they returned on their duty posts on Thursday following the suspension of their action by union leaders.
The offices of the commission at its corporate headquarters, Abuja, have been re-opened to customers and staff.
Aside official duties, commercial and private businesses by food vendors and hawkers adjacent to the building, also resumed fully.
A cross section of the vendors said the end of the strike was a huge relief.
“I used to make more than 10,000 naira a day but since the strike started, I didn’t even sell up to 400 naira because there were no customers,” said Mrs Roseline Okoye who operates a shop near the CAC headquarters.
Mr John Martins, commercial photocopier operator, said that the strike had caused him a lot of losses.
“You can imagine since the strike started I sometimes cannot make my transport fee back home because no customers,” he said.
CAC staff under the aegis of Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees, have been asking for improved welfare conditions despite the government's failed promises to Civil Servants.
