Labour Cancels Planned Strike In Ondo
Labour unions in Ondo State have resolved to revoked its planned strike.
Recall that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Joint Negotiating Council (JNC) had demanded that Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu should pay workers’ salary arrears or face the consequences of indefinite strike.
Chairman of NLC, Tayo Ogunleye, told journalists in Akure yesterday that the government had paid six out of the seven months arrears, pledging to defray the remaining before the end of January 2019.
He noted that the leadership of the organised labour had not compromised on the strike but only negotiated with the government on the welfare of workers.
He, however, expressed displeasure that government waited for an ultimatum from the labour unions before performing its duty.
