TheNigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) has announced that its members will be picketing offices of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) nationwide from Monday, July 26 for sealing its secretariat. 

In a formal notice signed by Ibzimakor Nnubia, the union’s Deputy General Secretary on behalf of General Secretary, Yahya Ndako, the FIRS was accused of engaging in “illegal” deduction of its members’ check-off dues which are accruable to the union and unlawfully clamping down on the union.

It read; 

“Please be informed that the Federal Inland Revenue Services has pitched itself against the Nigeria Civil Service Union over the union’s demand that issues impeding productivity and efficient service delivery be addressed, by clamping down on the union, sealing the union’s unit secretariat and unilaterally stopping check-off dues accruable to the union from our members.

“Flowing from these unwholesome tactics, the Nigeria Civil Service Union has resolved to picket the Federal Inland Revenue Services offices nationwide from 26 July 2022 until the Secretariat is unsealed; check-off dues deductions accruable fully restored and the contentious issues between the management and the union are resolved.”
