The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has said its proposed three-day warning  strike with RATTAWU will begin on Monday.

RATTAWU is the Radio, Television And Theatre Arts Workers Union.

The National Secretary of the NUJ, Mr. Shuaibu Leman, said in a statement on  Thursday in Abuja that barring any last minute agreement or change the strike would  go on.

Leman explained that the strike was to place on the front burner the demand for a  new salary structure for media workers in the Federal Government-owned media.

“The strike is meant to bring into front burner the enhanced and new salary  structure for media workers that is stalled somewhere with the Federal Government.

“During the strike action, members should stay at home and not lurk around the  premises of their offices,’’ he said.

In another statement signed by Mr Seye Adekeye, the NUJ’s Assistant National  Secretary, the union decried the huge disparity in the salaries of workers in  government-owned media and its other parastatal agencies.

“For instance, while a level 04 staff of NTA receives N12,011.91 monthly, his  counterpart in the Federal Inland Revenue Service is receiving N99,408.50k,’’ it  noted.
