Breaking : Strike looms in Ondo as organised labour gives govt ultimatum

The Organized Labour in ondo state has given Governor Rotimi Akeredolu eight days  to settle workers’ accumulated salaries and deductions or face industrial action.

The state government is owing workers October salaries and six months deductions which have crippled various cooperative societies in the state public service.

This is also affecting the state tertiary institutions.

The Labour movement which includes the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Joint Negotiating Council (JNC), called on government to urgently convene a meeting with the Labour leaders on or before friday August 27.

This is  to enable the state government  discuss how to pay the outstanding salaries and allowances.

The organised labour warning is contained in a letter addressed to the governor and signed by the state Chairmen and Secretaries of NLC, TUC and JNC, Sunday Adeleye-Oluwole, Helen Odofin, Niyi Fabunmi; Omokehinde Shado, Tajudeen Balogun and Kehinde Olomiye.

The Labour unions said the state government had failed to honour various previous agreements reached with the state government over their demands on salaries and deductions payment.
