Strike: Ogun begins implementation of agreement with workers

Ogun warns workers on planned strike

Ogun state government has begun the partial implementation of the agreement it signed with the organized labour early in November, to end the two week strike by the state’s civil servants.

Secretary to the state branch of the Joint Public Service Negotiating Council, Segun Adebiyi who spoke with Rockcity FM in Abeokuta, said the state government has released a list of promotion of the civil servants for the year 2015.

Also, out of the outstanding 12 months check-off dues stipulated in the agreement, only ten months had been remitted to the organized labour.

On the joint committee to look into the issue of contributory pensions scheme, Adebiyi said while the organized labour had nominated its representatives to serve in the committee, the state government is yet to set up its own committee for a joint meeting.

Under the agreement, the joint committee is expected to within 90 days submit their report on how to resolve the dispute between the labour and the state government on the disputed contributory pension scheme.

In addition, the payment of N200 million every other month to reduce the arrears of gratuities of retired workers effective from last month is yet to be implemented.

The other legs of the agreement, including the offsetting of the global deduction from workers salaries, the quarterly meeting between labour and government, will come up for implementation next year.

Meanwhile, the state government has paid the November salaries without the payment of the global deduction as agreed.
