Osun Workers Resume Work After Seven Weeks Strike.

Workers in Osun on Tuesday resumed work after seven weeks of industrial action called by the state Labour unions due to unpaid salaries by the state and local governments.

 

Workers in Osogbo Local Government were seen tidying up their offices at the council secretariat that had been under lock and keys for seven weeks.

 

A staff of the local government, Mr Maufu Abdullahi, said that workers resumed work following the directive they received from their union leaders suspending the strike on Monday.

 

He said workers had received bank alerts of one month salary (January) with a promise to get February’s salary on Thursday this week.

 

Abdullahi said the union leaders had promised that workers should expect the second payment on Thursday, while the remaining months would be paid when the Federal Government bailout fund was released.

 

Workers in the state Government Secretariat, Abere, were seen sparsely in their departments, some were in groups discussing the situation, while others were putting their offices in order.

 

One of the workers siad under the condition of anonymity that workers still had reasons to doubt the seriousness and sincerity of the state government to pay February salary on Thursday.
