NIC Suspends Service As Employees Down Tools


The National Insurance Corporation (NIC) regrets that we have had to suspend service to the public due to the unavailability of staff.

NIC is currently engaged in negotiations with the National Workers Union on a new collective agreement. The NIC and NWU last met on March 30th , 2023 at which the NIC advanced new  proposals.  NIC was anticipating a continuation of negotiations since discussions have not reached deadlock.

We have been trying and are continuing to try to contact the worker’s bargaining agent, the NWU to determine what is happening. As of the time of writing, we have had no communication from the Union.

Regretfully, we have had to suspend our service to the public until the situation is resolved.

NIC deeply regrets the inconvenience caused to our valued customers and thanks you for your patience and understanding.
