Edo State Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) on Wednesday issued a 14-day strike notice to the state government following alleged failure to meet its demands.

It listed some of the demands to include the payment of 2013 to 2015 promotion arrears of teachers in Oredo, Oehionnwon and Uhunmwode Local Governments, full implementation of the 30 per cent special allowance for teachers in schools for challenged children, payment of all arrears and payment of primary school teachers monthly salaries on or before the 27th day of every month.

The union, in a communiqué signed by Pius Okhueleigbe, state chairman and five others said the 14-day ultimatum, which takes effect from Tuesday, 29 December 2020, was to enable the Edo State Government to meet the union’s demands.

In a related development, labour unions in Ekiti State have threatened to start the New Year with a protest if the state government failed to implement the N30,000 minimum wage across all categories of workers.
