Ogun LG workers begin indefinite strike

Activities in the 20 local government areas of Ogun State were paralysed on Monday as the local government workers began an indefinite strike.

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, Ogun State branch, had on Friday directed that the entire workforce of the local government areas, Local Government Service Commission and Bureau of Local Government Pensions, to commence an indefinite strike from Monday, March 30.

This directive was contained in a statement issued and signed in Abeokuta, by the state Publicity Secretary of NULGE, Mr. Folarin Osunsanmi, a copy of which was made available to our correspondent.

It stated that the “painful decision” was taken at the state executive council of the union held on Tuesday, March 24.

The union said it decided to embark on the strike following alleged refusal of the state government to implement the agreement reached with it last January.

They said some of the agreements reached include payment of outstanding deductions of workers’ salaries and allowances ‎totalling N1.56bn.
