Public sector workers in Ogun State are warming up for a possible strike, over the delay by the state government in initiating negotiations with the organized labour for the implementation of the new national minimum wage.
The seven-day ultimatum which the organized labour issued to the state government to open negotiation on the new wage implementation, expired last Friday.
Governor Dapo Abiodun while launching the secretariat of the association of senior civil servants of Nigeria in Abeokuta last month, had said that his Administration was ready for the negotiations.
The governor also said then that his administration is giving the request of the labour for the negotiations a serious consideration.
But the chairman of the state NLC, Emmanuel Bankole told Rockcityfm news on Friday that the state government was yet to call them for negotiations as at close of work on Friday.
The NLC chairman expresses concern that the state government has not respond to any of the four letters written to it, requesting for a meeting on the negotiation for the wage issue.
Bankole says labour leaders will meet today, to review the situation, and determine on their next line of action, to compel the state government to initiate moves for the implementation of the new wage.
The NLC had given all its state councils uptill December 31 to conclude all forms of negotiation with their various state governments to ensure the implementation of the minimum wage as from January 2020.
