Oyo State government and the labour union have reached a mutually acceptable agreement over unpaid salaries of workers.

Both parties arrived at a satisfactory decision after three days of meetings and consultations between various arms of government and Labour.

The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Oyo State chapter, Waheed Olojede, made the disclosure after the meeting.

Mr Olojede said that the government has agreed that all its Federal Allocation would hereafter be devoted to payment of workers’ salaries.

Regretting the information gap that led to the seven-day ultimatum issued by labour, he hinted that the meeting resolved that a joint revenue mobilisation committee of labour and government would begin to drive, monitor and share any increase in Oyo State’s Internally Generated Revenues (IGR) between workers and government.

The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, had earlier described the ultimatum as illegal and that any strike would be met with a stiff penalty of ‘no work no pay’, insisting that Labour was aware of the fact on ground.

He had also secured a two-year suspension for debt relief in order to jack up Federal Allocation to the state, maintaining that workers should re-commit to devising ways of not just improving IGR but doing so significantly and consistently. (Channels TV)
