Oyo workers begin 3-day warning strike Wednesday – Labour unions

Three Labour unions in Oyo  have directed workers in the state employment  to stay from their duty posts for three days, starting from Wednesday.


The directive came in a statement jointly signed by Mr Kofo Ogundeji, NLC State Secretary, Mr Falegbe Mayowa, TUC State Secretary and Mr Olabode Akinfenwa, JNC Assistant State Secretary.

The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports the unions were the NLC, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Joint Negotiating Council (JNC).


They said that the action was to call on the state government to address the 13-week-old strike of the state-owned tertiary institutions and 256 sacked workers of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso.

It is also in solidarity with complaints presented by the Joint Health Sector Union(JOHESU), 56 months accumulated unpaid pensions and gratuities of retired primary school teachers and a halt in workers’ promotion since 2010.

Mr Waheed Olojede, the State NLC Chairman, who spoke alongside Mr Emmanuel Ogundiran Chairman, JNC/TUC, said government had shown continued insensitivity to the plight of workers of the state’s tertiary institutions who were owed 17 months salaries.

Olojede asked the state government to rescind its decision on the sacked 256 LAUTECH Teaching Hospital workers, considering their  hardship.

He added that the workers were directed to stay at home in solidarity with their  affected colleagues.

Olojede urged that the state government to  urgently attend to the grievances to avert further  actions.

NAN reports that senior official of thestate government were in a meeting over the issue as at the time of filing the report.(NAN)
