Kaduna — Workers of the New Nigerian Newspapers yesterday embarked on an indefinite strike following the non payment of their one year salary.
The workers had last week given the 19 northern governors, owners of the company, a-7-day ultimatum to upset the salary arrears.
Leader of the workers Comrade Ibrahim Adamu said they resolved to embark on the strike following the non payment of their monthly salary despite the ultimatum given to the northern governors.
"We, the workers of New Nigerian Newspapers (NNN), do hereby declare a work-to-rule strike action, commencing from this day January 21, 2013, following the expiration of a 7-day ultimatum issued the management of the company last Friday January 11, 2013.
The Managing Director of the company, Mallam Tukur Abdulrahaman, had last week urged workers of the company not to embark on the strike, as the company was yet to recover from the strike they embarked upon last year.
