The Acting Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Dr Abdul Zubair, has restated the commission’s commitment to workers’ welfare, to ensure peace and harmony in the organisation.
Zubair said this in a statement by the management of the commission on Monday in Abuja.
Zubair made the statement when he received executive members of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) led by its Secretary General, Mr Isaac Ojemhanke in Abuja.
He expressed the readiness of the present management of SEC to partner with the Trade Union to make working environment peaceful and ensure that the regulator carried out its responsibilities adequately.
“We are pleased to partner with you and extend our hands of fellowship; we do not want confrontations so we are willing to partner with the union to fashion a way forward.
“We take the union in high esteem, thus, we are here to listen and we are ready to work with you,” he said.
Earlier, the ASCSN Secretary General reiterated the importance of the organisation in ensuring the existence of a trade union, hence it would make efforts to ensure peace and harmony within the organisation.
Ojemhanke said,” there must be survival of the organisation; if the organisation does not survive, there will be no union.
“We are here to partner with the management; we will partner with the SEC once the management is ready to play by the rules,” he said.
Ojemhanke also commended the Acting DG for his efforts so far, especially in boosting the morale and improving industrial harmony in the commission.
He further expressed the organisation’s willingness to always support the management in that direction.
