Non-academic staff appealed to shelve strike

08 September 2014, 21:37

Oyo - The Oyo State Government has appealed to members of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) in its secondary schools to shelve their proposed strike and embrace dialogue.

The state government made the appeal in a letter to the union signed by the Acting Head of  Service, Soji Eniade.

Eniade  said that Governor Abiola Ajimobi had directed all relevant authorities to critically work out acceptable modalities for consideration of the workers’ demands.

"In cognisance of the recent kind gesture of the governor’s gracious approval for upward review of government workers salary, I wish to appeal to your members to step down the intended industrial action,’’ he said in the letter.

Eniade said shelving the strike would give room for meaningful negotiation and amicable resolution.

NASU had in an earlier letter to the state government issued a 21-day ultimatum for their demands to be met.

The union said in the letter that the state government had failed to implement the 37.5 percent peculiarity allowance it requested for its members in the State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).
