Minimum wage: Ekiti Workers Begin 3-day Warning Strike August 3


The Nigerian Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress and the Joint Negotiating Council in Ekiti state, had said that there was no going back on its planned commencement of a three-day warning strike from August 3.

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.

In a statement released in Ado Ekiti, the organized labour disclosed that:

“This warning strike, called by the organised labour in Ekiti, 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.
