Secretary General of the NUP Actor Zal in a press statement said only six months arrears were released to the union.
President Jonathan had late last year in a bid to avoid an industrial action promised the leadership of NUP, Nigeria Labour Congress and TUC to pay all the outstanding arrears of the union’s check- off dues.
Comrade Actor Zal said the amount released which totalled about N90 million covered November 2012 to April 2013, and about eight months arrears are still pending.
The statement also said the NUP is the only voice and representative of the entire civil service pensioners, adding that one Emmanuel Omoyeni who is claiming to be national chairman of a group of pensioners, Association of Federal Civil Service Retirees (AFCSR), cannot represent pensioners.
“NUP is a registered and legitimate Trade Union recognized by the extant labour law and constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. And just like other registered trade unions is entitled to collection of check off dues from its members.
“The association Chief Omoyeni claims to represent is a business outfit registered with Corporate Affairs Commission and not a registered trade union which would entitled it to any check off dues.
