The Ondo State Council of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC has given the state government 7 days within which to meet all of their demands or they will withdraw their services across the state.
This is contained in a press release signed by the state chairman, Ekundayo Soladoye (Esq.) and Secretary, Fatuase Clement which was made available to SUNSHINE HERALD in Akure.
The Congress berated the state government for its "unfair labour practice and anti-workers' policies."
The Congress expressed its frustration at the long list of issues concerning workers welfare which the State Government has left unattended to. The issues range from workers 2017 promotion, payment of 2017 leave bonuses, remittance of deductions, payment of arrears of salaries/pensions and payment of 20% balance of 2016 September salary among others," part of the statement read.
The workers' union also accused the government of a deliberate attempt to short charge workers in the state by not being willing to meet labour leaders on issues that concern workers in the state.
While admonishing workers to remain steadfast, the Congress further promised its members it will not rest until all issues affecting workers in the state are resolved.
Efforts by SUNSHINE HERALD to reach the Information Commissioner, Yemi Olowolabi proved abortive, as numerous calls placed to his phone did not go through. The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Segun Ajiboye also promised to call the reporter back when he was reached but did not call back as at the time of filing this report.
