Osun will Join Nationwide Strike.

Workers in Osun said that they will join their counterpart from other state for nationwide strike if the federal government and labour failed to reach agreement on consequential adjustment on the wage increase.

The chairman of the state chapter of the Nigeria labour congress NLC, Comrade  Jacob Adekomi, stated this in Osogbo. He also noted that he receives the directives from the national headquarters of the congress and it must be followed strictly.

The NLC general secretary, Mr. Emmanuel Ugboaja, had in a circular, directed the state councils of the congress to mobilise its members for the strike in case the negotiations between the government and the union breaks down.
