The Organised labour unions,Ondo State Chapter have threatened to start strike tomorrow,13th November, if Ondo State government fails to pay their salary arrears.

This was contained in a letter to the Executive Governor of the State,Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu dated November 9, 2018 and duely signed by state chairmen of the Trade Union Congress,Nigeria Labour Congress and the Joint Negotiating Council,Soladoye Ekundayo, Tayo Ogunleye, and Abel Oloniyo, respectively, the workers requested that the Governor should pay the Salary areas from the N20bn Paris Club giving to the state by the Federal Government.

Ondo State workers challenged the governor of not carrying the labour unions along on the release of the Paris Club refund to the state as agreed by both parties.

The workers have now vow to go on an industrial Action if the government failed to pay the outstanding salaries latest Tuesday which is tomorrow.

Excerpt of the letter to Ondo State Government is giving below:

“we want to draw the attention of His Excellency to the recommendations of a committee on payment of six months arrears of salary to Ondo State workers set up by the state government that was submitted to Your Excellency in May 2017.

We also hold that the said agreement subsists between labour and the government of Ondo State irrespective of who mounts the mantle of leadership particularly when the state Head of Service remains the signatory to both the agreement and the committee report.

In view of the above, we call on the government to please pay in line with our agreement as analysed in our letter under  reference on or before 12 noon Tuesday, November 13, 2018“.
