Workers at the Police Service Commission (PSC) have declared an indefinite strike over what they described as a breach of conditions necessary for working harmony.

The union noted that the strike will commence with effect from Monday, August 29, 2022.

This was disclosed in a letter signed by the Chairman of the Joint Service Union, PSC chapter, Mr. Adoyi Adoyi but obtained on Thursday, 25, 2022.

“You may wish to recall that the Joint Union Congress of the Police Service Commission had embarked on a 3-day warning strike on Monday 24 January, 2022, which was suspended in national interest in order to embrace dialogue and reconciliation,” the letter reads.

“As a responsible union, we make bold to state that all the conditions necessary for continuous working harmony have been breached by the management, hence our resort to continue with our agitation until our earlier agreements are fully implemented.

“Following from the above therefore, the union and the entire staff do hereby serve a notice of indefinite strike to the Management, beginning on Monday, 29 August 2022.”

The development comes amid the disagreement between Usman Baba, inspector-general of police, and the PSC over recruitment of constables into the Nigeria Police Force.

On Monday, NPF dismissed an advertisement by PSC calling for applicants to apply as constables in the force.

Owing to NPF’s protest, the PSC suspended the 2022 recruitment of constables into the force.

In January 2022, the PSC workers declared a three-day warning strike over the alleged takeover of the recruitment of 10,000 constables by the police, lack of staff promotion and training by the commission management.
