According to reports making the rounds today,
workers in the civil service of all parastatals in Ondo
state have embarked on strike following government
refusal to pay their salary.
The salary which hasn’t been paid is the outstanding
deductions for the months of September, October and
November 2014.
The workers, who had on Monday threatened 2-days
warning strike that elapsed on Wednesday, said the
strike action became imperative following alleged
uncaring attitude displayed by the Mimiko led
government in the state.
In a statement issued Today to Journalists, in Akure,
the state capital, by the State Chairman of the Joint
Public Service Negotiating Council (JNC), Sunday
Adeleye said workers should embark on strike if
government would failed to grant their request.
The statement reads: “The non-payment all deductions
such as cooperatives, and thrift societies, shilling funds
and month loan repayment deductions among others for
the month of September, October, November and
December 2014 by the state government have exposed
government high of insensitivity to the plight of workers
and masses in general”
“The mood of workers and the entire populace in the
state are full of hopeless, recurrent disappointment,
disenfranchisement, poverty ridden, betrayal of trust and
over over-burden”
As a result of the strike, gates leading to all
government ministries, agencies and parastatals in
the state have been placed under lock and key. Also,
Public schools both secondary and primary have also
been closed down with pupils and students sent
home.
