Sacked Ondo Poly workers drag Govt to court over unlawful disengagement

Thirty  sacked staff of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic Staff Primary and Secondary Schools, Owo, Ondo State, have vowed to seek legal redress over their unlawful disengagement.

The aggrieved workers said they have informed their lawyer to drag the management to court

The sacked workers in a letter sent to the management and  the State Head of Service though their counsel, Ayenakin Olabanjo, Esq demanded their immediate reinstatement.

They also want  continuous payment of their salaries.

According to the letter,  the purported disengagement of the thirty staff is   wrongful, illegal and inconsequential.

The letter reads in part, ” Without committing any offence and without any acceptable internal re-organisation whatsoever; your establishment; issued letters of disengagement to our clients who work in your staff secondary school and staff primary school; thereby disengaging our clients from the services of your institution.

“Consequently, we have our clients’ instructions to demand their immediate reinstatement and the continuous payment of their salaries.

“Take notice that if you fail, refuse or neglect to accede to our demand within thirty days from the date on this letter, we have our clients’ instruction to commence legal action against your establishment and by that time; we will be praying the court for our clients’ reinstatement, payment of salaries and aggravated damages”.
