Oyo Workers Begin Three-Day Warning Strike

The Oyo State government workers today began a three-day warning strike to press home their demands for regular salaries and improved work conditions.

The workers announced this development in a letter of January 14 titled: “Re: Unresolved Labour Issues With The State Government” and addressed to the state governor, Abiola Ajimobi.

In the letter written under the auspices of the Public Service Joint Negotiation Council, the workers said they would be left with no option than to embark on a strike on Wednesday if the government failed to meet their demands by close of work on Tuesday.

In the letter signed by the council’s scribe, Akinfenwa Olabode, the workers said the state government had failed to address the demands they made in a previous letter dated January 7, in which they issued a seven-day ultimatum, hence the storke which started today.
