Uduaghan appeals for labour leaders' backing

12 November 2014, 21:31

Delta - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has appealed for workers to back their leaders and their ability to represent them in engagements in government.

He made the call while addressing members of National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Delta State chapter who paid him a solidarity visit following the appointment of their former President, Comrade Olumami Oyibo, as Chairman of the Local Government Service Commission in the state.

According to him, workers should always have confidence in their leadership, observing that the union leaders faced a lot of challenges in the act of representing their members.

He specifically stated that the President of NULGE in the state, David Ofoeyeno, always employed dialogue in negotiating with government on the welfare of council workers.

“Always cooperate with your leaders, cooperate with your President. It is not easy. He is always pushing your case more than you know of especially now that there are financial challenges facing the local governments,” he said.

He assured workers of his administration's commitment to ensure a good work relationship with them.

Ofoeyeno accompanied by members of the union from different local government areas of the state, commended Uduaghan for ensuring a workers' friendly government.
