Deductions: Labour issues 7-day ultimatum to Abiodun

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in Ogun State has asked Governor Dapo Abiodun to address the “pathetic plight” of workers within seven days or face an industrial action.

 The union accused Abiodun of non-remittance of 21 months’ salary deductions, eight years of unpaid statutory leave allowances and breach of the State Pension Reform Law, 2006 (amended 2013) in the implementation of the Contributory Pension Scheme.

Their grievances were contained in a June 21 letter jointly signed by the state chairman of the NLC, Emmanuel Bankole; chairman of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Akeem Lasisi, and the chairman of the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC), Isa Olude.

 The labour leaders lamented that the welfare of workers had been in limbo in the last three years.

 The labour union recalled that a June 7 letter sent to the government on the growing restiveness among workers with a call for immediate dialogue was not honoured.
