FG looks to enforce “No Work No Pay’’ law

The Federal Government has resolved to enforce the “No Work No Pay’’ doctrine as part of measures to restore harmony into the public service in the country.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, made this known on Wednesday at the end of the Federal Executive Council’s meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He stated that the council’s decision to strictly observe and implement the doctrine followed the council’s acceptance of the recommendation of the report of the Technical Committee on Industrial Relation matters in the federal public service.

The committee which was chaired and co-chaired by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Head of Service, was inaugurated on April 26, 2016.

“The report emphasises the need for government to implement the law on “No Work No Pay’’.

“The “No work No Pay’’ is not a rule neither is it a policy. It is a law captured in the Trade Dispute Act of the Federation, section 43, which says workers have the right to disengage their service from an employer if there is a breakdown in their discussion/negotiation.

“But, for the periods that the worker does so, the employer should not pay and those periods are to be counted as non-pensionable times in his period of work.

“So, Council today re-emphasised that law is still and it should be brought to the knowledge of workers in Nigeria especially those in the public sector,” he said.

Also addressing the correspondents on the outcome of the council’s meeting, the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole announced that the federal government would soon ban private practice by its medical personnel including doctors nationwide.
