TRADE Union Congress (TUC), Anambra State Council, has dissociated itself from a publication carried by a certain national news organisation on October 9.

The report was purportedly sponsored by Organised Labour in Anambra State and entitled: `Pension Scam Rocks Anambra’.
This is contained in a letter signed by TUC State Chairman and Secretary, Mr Ifeanyi Okechukwu and Mr Alex C. Ebi respectively.

The letter, addressed to Gov. Willie Obiano, said that the publication was strictly the opinion of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and did not represent the position of organised labour that comprised the NLC, TUC and JNC.

The congress pointed out that talks had been going on between government and organised labour to address all ‘grey areas’ concerning contributory pension scheme.

It also affirmed that both parties are yet to conclude discussions, stating that it was not consulted, neither did any organ of the council, nor did the tripartite bodies that made up the organised labour meet or agree, in whatever form or manner, to any such publication.
