The Kwara state chapter of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has expressed satisfaction with the level of compliance to the industrial action embarked upon by the national body of the union. The state TUC Chairman, Mr Nasir Olumoh, told the Newsmen in Ilorin that there will be more compliance in subsequent days.
The union leader urged workers in the state to stay at home to avoid embarrassment from the officials of the union. On the refusal of bank workers to join the strike, Olumoh promised to ensure that the staff observed the industrial action in the days to come.
According to him, the union has sent a message to the national secretariat of the body controlling the affairs of bank workers. He also hailed the workers of the telecommunications operators and Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) for complying with the Labour’s directive.
Meanwhile, Civil Servants working at the Lagos state Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja could not gain access into their offices today as the in and out gates to the secretariat were shut and blocked by officials of Labour Unions that commenced a 7-day warning strike over the government’s foot-dragging on a new minimum wage for workers.
