Delta Steel Company (DSC) pensioners in Delta State have complained to Hon Francis Waive of House of Representative that, they have been underpaid, their payment was not harmonized, and they are being owed 9 years pension arrears.
The pensioners under the ages of Association of Iron and Steel Retired Staff of Nigeria, DSC branch in a petition to Hon Francis Ejiroghene Waive, Member representing Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu Federal Constituency in the House of Representative complained about the poor way they have been treated.
The President Steel Town Community, Udu, Delta State, Mr Simeon Segba speaking to newsmen after a meeting with Hon Waive, called for stakeholders meeting between them, PTAD, Head of Service, Salary and Wages Commission and Ministry power, to discuss their issues.
He said, some of our pensioners receive as low as N2,000 as pension per month, while those in level 14 officer, that is like an assistant director in the ministry will be earning a pension of N16,000 per month, and this is due largely to wrong computation. We are not asking for what is not our right, we are asking for what is our right, and we have the documents to that effect, the submission I gave to Hon. Francis Waive, all the documents are attached and the day they call for that important meeting it will be better for all of us.
The House Member has assured them that he will take up their case to the appropriate authorities and ensure that their concerns are addressed.
