Activities at the transmission company of Nigeria was disrupted on Tuesday May 14th 2091 as the trade union congress TUC succeeded in picketing the company by The senior staff association of electricity and allied company SSAEAC over alleged illegal conditions of services.
The chairman of the trade Union picketing committee Cyril Nzekwe told our correspondent that management had withheld promotions transfer, of SSAEAC members in the last five years.
He also alleged that management has instilled fear and intimidation of its members by choosing to use some junior staff in the organization to scuttle the peace and harmony amongst members of staff as the management use such junior staff to intermediate some senior staff members.

If they don’t like your face its sorry for that person and some of have been stagnated for five years No movement, instead of moving up, you will be moved down.
