AEDC settles workers’ unpaid 18-month salaries, other entitlements

Published

on

The Federal Government (FG), on Monday, disclosed that the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) management has settled its workers’ 18-month unpaid salaries, allowances and other entitlements.

This is coming on the heels of a recent industrial action embarked upon by the Company’s workers which led to a shutdown of its power facilities across FCT, Kogi, Nasarawa and Niger State.

The Minister of Power,  Abubakar Aliyu, in a statement issued by the Director, Press Unit, Mr Austin Asoluka, said the Ministry’s intervention facilitated the payment of the entitlements as agreed in the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) and other stakeholders in December 2021.

He said the entitlements settled include; unpaid allowances, salaries, union deductions and unremitted 20 months pensions contributions deducted from workers’ salaries.

To this end, he reaffirmed FG’s commitment in working with all stakeholders to ensure steady electricity supply and stability in the electricity industry.

The Minister added that the government will continue to ensure that all the electricity sector players and stakeholders work according to the rules and guidelines.

In December 2021, the Ministry had taken the initiative that ended the AEDC workers’ strike by engaging organised labour.

This also ushered in a change of the Disco’s management by the shareholders, a move that was endorsed by NERC and BPE.
