In the past week, there has been lots of uproar by Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) Oyo State chapter over the five months unpaid salaries of workers by the state government and a proposed strike after 7 days notice.
On Friday,The state NLC chairman,Mr Waheed Olojede(photo above) spoke to newsmen at their Secretariat that the Union “shelved” strike following a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the state government and labour leaders.
In his words,he said “we reached an agreement after a meeting with the governor on Thursday evening where he agreed that the entire monthly allocation released to the state by Federal Government should be used to pay the salaries.
He also said that labour and government had agreed to work together to increase Internally Generated Revenue(IGR) in the state by constituting a committee on this and lastly called on all workers to be patient and allow the government and labour put into operation the new MoU.
Good news? 🙂
