Ondo State workers threaten to begin strike on Tuesday over non payment of salaries

Organised labour unions in Ondo State have threatened to commence strike on Tuesday, November 13, if the government fails to pay the backlog of their salary arrears.

In a letter to the governor dated November 9, 2018 and signed by state chairmen of the Nigeria Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress and the Joint Negotiating Council, Tayo Ogunleye; Soladoye Ekundayo and Abel Oloniyo, respectively, the workers asked Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to pay the backlog from the N20bn Paris Club refund the state received from the Federal Government recently.

The workers accused the governor of not consulting the labour unions on the release of the Paris Club refund to the state as both parties had earlier agreed. According to the workers, industrial peace in the state might not be guaranteed if the government failed to pay the outstanding salaries on Tuesday as they threatened to resume the strike suspended on June 2016 in the state.

The letter read in part, “we want to draw the attention of His Excellency to the recommendations of a committee on payment of six months arrears of salary to Ondo State workers set up by the state government that was submitted to Your Excellency in May 2017.

We also hold that the said agreement subsists between labour and the government of Ondo State irrespective of who mounts the mantle of leadership particularly when the state Head of Service remains the signatory to both the agreement and the committee report.

In view of the above, we call on the government to please pay in line with our agreement as analysed in our letter under reference on or before 12 noon Tuesday, November 13, 2018“

Donald Duke calls for for a periodic review of salaries every 10 years and tells FG to identify real problems facing Nigerian civil servants

Donald Duke, the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party has advised the Federal Government to identify and solve the immediate problems confronting Nigerian civil servants, saying increment in minimum wage is not the solution.

In a statement issued in Calabar, Duke said the current “fire brigade” response to the clamour for increase in minimum wage was tantamount to giving a short-term solution to a long-term problem. He called on the Federal Government to find a comprehensive and long-term solution to the lingering minimum wage crisis in the country.

He said, “the best approach to solving this lingering problem is to identify and address the real needs of civil servants such as food, housing, transportation, health, children’s education and security, rather than focusing on salary increases.”

Duke cited the highly subsidised Metro Blue public transportation scheme he introduced for civil servants as the governor of Cross River State which helped to cut down the transport cost of civil servants in the state during his administration. He urged the government to involve all stakeholders, including the organised private sector and state governments in the negotiation process, adding that they equally had important stake because they employed reasonable number of workers and called for a periodic review of salaries every 10 years, taking into cognisance variables such as inflation.
