BREAKING: Ekiti State Workers Set to Begin Warning Strike on Monday

Ekiti state labour union has said on Friday that there was no going back on its initial planned three-day warning strike from 3rd of August 2020.

The statement was jointly signed in Ado Ekiti by Kolapo Olatunde, Sola Adigun and Kayode Fatomiluyi who were the Chairmen of NLC, TUC and JNC respectively.

According to the statement, the strike is for their demand of five years leave bonuses, hazard allowances of COVID-19 to health workers, salary arrears and deductions.

“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 Trade Union Congress, Nigerian Labour Congress, and the Joint Negotiating Council have therefore directed Ekiti workers to proceed on the warning strike from 12 midnight of August and that they will commence a full-blown strike if government failed to accede to their demands.

They were also demanding for 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.

They stated that government of Ekiti state is yet to attend to any of their requests which includes financial promotion for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
