The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) and Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers Union (RATTAWU) have shelved their plan to picket Daar Communications, owners of AIT and Ray Power 100.5FM, over unpaid salary arrears of media workers.

The unions made th e disclosure in a joint statement issued to newsmen on Friday in Abuja by the National Secretary of the NUJ Mr Shuaibu Leman.

The statement said: “the company is in arrears of salaries of NUJ and RATTAWU members on its employ for almost two years.

“Series of efforts by the two unions to get the management of the organisation to honour its obligation to its workers have been futile following the failure of the management to see salary payment as priority.

“This forced the two unions to take the legal step of planning massive picketing in conjunction with organised labour in the NLC and TUC.

“But following the intervention of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, the two unions met on Wednesday with representatives of the Ministry of Labour and management of DAAR Communications and the following decisions were reached.

“That DAAR Communications Plc shall henceforth pay at the end of every month, current salaries and allowances, and one month of the outstanding arrears, effective November, 2016.

“That payment of staff salaries and allowances will be made as at when due for the sake of good industrial relation, peace and harmony.

“That a committee shall be set up immediately, comprising DAAR Communications PLc, NUJ, RATTAWU with representatives of the Ministry of Labour and Employment to ensure compliance and harmonize all outstanding arrears nationwide.”

The statement said that no member of the unions in DAAR communications would be victimised for the role they played in the matter.

It added that based on the aforementioned, NUJ and RATTAWU agreed to suspend the planned picketing of DAAR Communications nationwide.
