The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has warned Kano State Government against frequent deduction of workers’ salaries and pensioners’ allowances.
The union said it will no longer fold its hands and allow such to continue, vowing it will henceforth challenge such deductions.
Kano State NLC Chairman, Kabiru Minjibir, made this known is in an interview in Kano on Tuesday.
“We strongly rise against the deduction of worker’s salaries by Kano state government with no reason given or without their notice,” he said.

It was gathered that last month, the Kano State Government deducted civil servants salary and pensioners allowance without notification or reason for the deduction.
Minjibir categorically stated that any move to deduct the salaries of the state workers or pensioners allowance would be resisted.
The NLC boss called on all its affiliate unions and state branches to resist any salary deduction in December.
He said such action is illegal as workers’ salaries are core elements of employment contracts and collective bargaining agreements.
