share on:

The Oyo state chapter of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), has declared that the congress will embark on a one-day warning strike on Monday, July 11, to protest the failure of the government to attend to their demands.

A statement issued on Tuesday by the TUC Secretary, Oyo State Council, Mr John Alli, and made available to newsmen in Lagos, confirmed this development.

According to the statement, the union bewailed the non-payment of salaries of civil servants in the state and all outstanding arrears of Federal civil servants.

The TUC also gave Governor Abiola Ajimobi, a 15-day ultimatum to pay the six months salary arrears due to the state civil servants or resign from office.

The statement called on philanthropists, clerics and well-meaning Nigerians and the international community to save the soul of Oyo civil servants through the distribution of foods and other relief materials.

The statement said that it was worrisome that about 26 other state governments were owing salary arrears of close to five months; subjecting their workers to poverty and penury.
