Industrial action paralyses Ogun government

07 March 2016, 20:36

Abeokuta - The industrial action by civil servants in Ogun state has crippled economic activities in the state., Punch reports.

The state secretariat at Oke Mosan, Abeokuta was like a ghost town as no worker reported to work.

The notice of the industrial action was contained in a statement by the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council.

The workers’ union had called the strike due to the failure of the state government to respect the Memorandum of Understanding signed by state labour leaders, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment and the state government on January 25 this year.

Few workers, who were unaware of the strike and came to work earlier in the day, had to return to their homes.

Local government workers also joined the industrial action, which also affected public schools.

Pupils of public primary and secondary schools, who went to school, were seen returning to their homes, as their teachers did not show up for work.
