The Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC), Oyo State chapter, on Monday, suspended the industrial action it embarked upon last week, as a result of the failure of the out-going governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi to reach a truce with it over the payment of salary and arrears of workers in the state.
The chairman of the union in Oyo State, Comrade Titilola Sodo, disclosed this in a release made available to journalists in Ibadan.
According to the labour leader in the state, ” the incoming governor of Oyo State, Eng Seyi Makinde is a well bred and well nurtured person and labour believes that he will address all issues pertaining to the welfare of workers in the state Oyo State.”
“In defence to this man of honor and to assure Eng Seyi Makinde of the good intentions of Oyo State workers, the strike action is hereby suspended, and workers are hereby directed to resume immediately.” The statement stated.
“The strike came into being due to the belief that with political will, the remaining number of days would still birth a good life for the workers. Our strike action was not intended to intimidate or embarrass the in-coming government as some people may want to insinuate.”
