Oyo workers to receive salary arrears - NLC

27 July 2015, 06:47

Ibadan - Waheed Olojede, Chairman of the Oyo state Chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), said that workers in the state would start collecting their outstanding salary arrears from this week.

Olojede said this was based on an agreement reached between the government and the state chapter of NLC.

"Workers in Oyo state will start getting the arrears of their outstanding salaries starting from this week," he said.

While local government staff are owed salaries of May and June, other workers in the state were owed salaries of April, May and June.

Olojede, who revealed the information in Ibadan on Sunday, said that the exercise would begin with the payment of March salary to workers in the mainstream on Grade Level 13 and above.

According to him, the payment would not include the local government staffs that have already collected their March and April salaries.
