After a warning strike to protest salaries owed for 17 months, workers in Osun State, on Monday, returned to their duty posts.

The Joint Labour Unions, comprising the Joint Negotiating Council, Nigeria Labour Congress, and the Trade Union Congress, in the state, had embarked on the strike to demand payment of 17 months’ salary arrears and other entitlements.

The workers also demanded “payment of 34 months’ pension arrears of retired workers in the state, remittance of 34 months’ contributory pension arrears, and payment of outstanding gratuity to all pensioners”.

The workers had embarked on a three-day warning strike on Wednesday last week.
However, according to NAN, the workers returned to work on Monday, pending further information from the labour unions.

Asked if the state government had met their demands, Jacob Adekomi, Osun Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), said they would meet with government officials next week.

He said: “They (the government) said they are in Abuja, and they would meet us when they return this week.

“We are waiting for them to meet with us, so that we will know the next line of action.” (NAN)
