Organised labour in Oyo State has issued a 7-day ultimatum to Oyo State Government to settle over five months arrears of salaries owed to workers.
The ultimatum was issued in a statement on Tuesday in Ibadan by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Joint Negotiation Council (JNC).
Speaking at a news conference, the State NLC Chairman Mr Waheed Olojede, stated that the 7-day ultimatum would be effective starting from today, Wednesday, March 30 and elapse on Thursday, April 7.
He said that the unions had considered the prevailing condition of workers and pensioners with five months unpaid salaries and the failure of government to accede to previous requests.
“If government fails to meet the leadership of the labour movement in the state, we may not be able to guarantee continued industrial peace beyond the stipulated time,” he said. (NAN)
