Oyo higher institution workers threaten fresh strike

The Joint Action Committee of the six tertiary institutions in Oyo State on Monday issued a one-week ultimatum to  Governor  Abiola Ajimobi to pay its members their  salary arrears.

The group threatened  to begin strike on Monday  if the state government failed to pay them their entitlements.

In a  communiqué issued at  the end of its meeting  at Oke Ogun Polytechnic,   the JAC, comprising members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, College of Education Academic Staff Union and other unions   in the six Oyo State-owned tertiary institutions, expressed its disappointment with the development.

The  communiqué signed by  the JAC  Chairman,  Afees Adeniyi,   read in part, “(It was resolved that) a seven-day ultimatum (from January 7 to 14, 2019) should be issued for  the state government to pay all the arrears of between three  and 18 months, failure of which all the workers in the six tertiary institutions would resume their suspended industrial action by January 14, 2019.”

The group added that the trade unions should  “align themselves with any action embarked upon by the  NLC Oyo State Council regarding the  payment of   the three and 18 months salary arrears of workers of the six tertiary institutions.”
