Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), in Osun State chapter, Mr Jacob Adekomi said it would resist any attempt by state government to reduce workers’ salaries by 50 per cent.

Adekomi told newsmen after an emergency meeting of the union in Osogbo on Friday that the government had concluded plans to reduce workers’ salaries.

Although he did not disclose his source of information, it may not be unconnected with the government’s recent 50 per cent reduction in the salaries of political office holders as part of its austerity measures.

He said the financial mess the government found itself was a product of its systematic failure.

According to him, workers will not accept salary cut. Any attempt to cut the salaries of workers by even one percent will be vehemently resisted.

``If the plan is imposed on the workers, it will lead to unimaginable chaos. We learnt that the cut will take effect from January 2015”, he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the state government paid December salaries to the workers on Tuesday after five weeks of strike. (NAN)
