Half Salary: Osun workers start indefinite strike.

Labour leaders and civil servants led by the Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Osun State, Mr. Tunde  Adekomi, on Wednesday started an indefinite strike to protest the plan by Governor Rauf Aregbesola to pay them half salaries.

The protesters, who shut down the State Secretariat at Abere, wondered why the state government could not pay the workers their full pay after collecting N6.3bn being the third tranche of the Paris Club loan refund from the Federal Government.

Labour leaders had last Friday announced that they would begin an indefinite strike immediately after the Christmas break to protest payment of modulated salary, lack of promotion and the non-remittance of their contributory pension deductions to the workers’ pension accounts.

The NLC chairman, the chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Mr. Amudah Wakeel and other labour leaders stormed the secretariat gate as early as 7am on Wednesday to ensure compliance to the directive from the labour leaders.
