The Ekiti State organised labour has given a 14-day notice to Governor Kayode Fayemi to settle all outstanding benefits to workers in the state asap.

The labour group recently came out to say that failure to do that will attract indefinite industrial action.

According to the Chairmen of Nigerian Labour Congress, Com. Kolapo Olatunde, his counterparts in the Trade Union Congress, Com. Sola Adigun and Joint Negotiating Council, Com. Kayode Fatomiluyi, immediate payment of outstanding workers’ promotion arrears, deductions, salaries, allowances, bonuses and other benefits are important within the agreed time to prevent industrial strike in Ekiti.

They added that it is pitiable that despite the several letters sent to the governor reminding to fulfil his promise, there has been no response so far.

The group had this to say, “Arising from foregoing, we felt dazed and betrayed by the state government for not reciprocating our patriotic zeal and disposition to the state corporate governance by not acceding to any of workers’ demands since the beginning of the present administration which is now close to two years. This is painful .

“On the strength of the above , the state government is hereby called upon to implement all the above listed items within the next fourteen days with effect from Monday, 20th July, 2020 failure, workers shall embark on 3 days warning strike commencing in the mid-night of Monday, 3rd August, 2020”.

“Pay three months gross salaries arrears and five months deductions for State Workers and Secondary School teachers. Six months gross salaries and six months deductions for Local government workers and Primary School Teachers”.

“Also, hazard allowance for Health workers working under this ravaging COVID-19 Pandemic should be paid with immediate effect.”
