The organised labour in Ekiti workers, on Friday , said that there was no going back on its planned commencement of a three -day warning strike from August 3 .



The strike, according to the Nigerian Labour Congress,  Ekiti workers Trade Union Congress and the Joint Negotiating Council , is to compel the state government to pay the outstanding salaries , allowances and pension arrears of their members.

They, therefore , directed workers across the state to proceed on the warning strike, after which , they said, a full -blown strike would follow if government failed to accede to their demands.


The directive was made known via a statement jointly signed by the Chairmen of NLC , TUC and JNC, Kolapo Olatunde , Sola Adigun and Kayode Fatomiluyi respectively in Ado Ekiti .

Their demands also included unresolved issues surrounding unpaid benefits and non -implementation of the N30, 000 minimum wage across board.
Others are non -payment of leave bonus from 2015 till date as well as the arrears of promotions for workers at all levels .
“This warning strike, called by the organised labour in Ekiti workers , will commence on the midnight of August 3 .

“The state government has yet to attend to any of our requests , such as financial promotion for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
“There is no commitment to all the outstanding deductions , such as cooperative money , loan repayment to banks, housing fund and others .
“Our demands also include five years leave bonuses, hazard allowances of COVID -19 to health workers , salary arrears and deductions , all yet to be paid .

“Based on the above , the strike will commence from 12 midnight of Aug. 3 , except government attends to our demands.
“We warn that no worker should go to work or listen to any directive from any quarters , except from the leadership of the organised labour , ” the statement said.
