The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have given the state government seven days to pay salary arrears, pensions and gratuities or face industrial action.
A statement by the union leaders said the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of December 30, 2017 between them and the state government had failed to yield expected result.
“After critical review of the unbending posture of the government, despite the three-day warning to accede to the demands of workers, the situation fails to provide the expected answer to the amelioration of the workers’ plight.
“We are constrained to use this medium to give the government a seven-day notice of strike which commences on September 10.
“The joint labour unions, however, demands that the expected salary arrears, pensions and gratuities which have subjected Osun workers to unabated hardship remains unchanged,” the statement read in part.
