Workers under the employment of Zamfara State government have embarked on an indefinite strike for the failure of the government to meet their several demands.

The workers had earlier given the government a 21 day ultimatum to meet certain demands or face industrial action.

The Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress in the State, Bashir Mafara, announced the decision after a joint meeting of the affiliated unions in Gusau.

He said Zamfara workers were faced with a number of problems which include failure to pay the salaries of 1,400 recruited by the government, non-payment of backlog of pension and gratuities, non-payment of the minimum wage to primary school teachers and local government employees as well as non-payment of annual salary increment.
