    Workers of the National Agency for Food, Drug and Administration Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday began a seven-day warning strike over unpaid arrears.

    The health workers at the agency are also members of the Medical and Health Workers Union.

    The vice-chairman of the union, Idzi Isua, who confirmed the reports, stated that the agency is demanding payment of arrears owed its members and other issues.

    Mr Isua said the union is demanding the payment of promotion arrears for 2018 and 2019 promotions owed its members.

    He said: “More worrisome is that 2020 promoted staff will soon (also) join the queue. This request has lingered for too long hence the strike action.”

    NAFDAC workers are also demanding an upward review of their job specific allowance in line with the approved new national minimum wage.

    According to them, the allowance has not been reviewed in the last 10 years.
