Labour leaders in the State of Osun have dismissed the rumour being circulated on social media that workers in the state have gone back on strike because of the non fulfillment of the agreement reached by the labour unions and the government.
The labour leaders described the report as untrue and uncalled for, calling on the workers to resume their duties tomorrow, January 8.
A press statement signed by the Chairmen of Joint Negotiation Council (JNC), Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) Comrades Bayo Adejumo, Jacob Adekomi and Adebowale Adekola, implored the workers to disregard the false information.
READ FULL STATEMENT
NO STRIKE IN OSUN STATE
Attention of the labour leaders in Osun state has been drawn to a mischievous rumour and post trending on social media that Osun workers should stay away from work from Mon 8/01/18 to commence another strike. It’s a false and mischievous information.
All workers should resume at their respective duty post and perform their lawful duties.
The signed MOU between the workers and the government of Osun state on Saturday 23/12/2017 to end the last strike still subsist and we have the assurances of full implementation of the MOU.
The implementation of full payment for December 2017 salary that is yet to translate to cash in the pockets of workers is not as a breach of the MOU but logistics problems which all concerned are doing the best to ensure speedy process.
To this end we implore all workers of Osun state government (state and local government) to
DISREGARD THE RUMOUR OF STRIKE and go to their respective duty post on Monday while waiting for their salary alert.
BE GUIDED PLEASE. NO STRIKE IN OSUN
Comrade Bayo Adejumo, Chairman JNC. Comrade Jacob Adekomi, Chairman NLC. Comrade Adebowale Adekola, Chairman TUC
