Strike: Fayose, labour leaders meeting deadlocked

22 June 2016, 17:09

Ekiti - The meeting between Governor Ayodele Fayose and the labour unions in Ekiti State with a view to resolving the crisis between them on Tuesday ended in a deadlock, Vanguard reports.

It was gathered that the governor appealed to the workers to shelve the strike in the interest of the state and for internally generated revenue.

The state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Raymond Adesanmi said that the strike would continue because the meeting failed to resolve the crisis between the parties.

He said according to Sun, “The governor listened to us and promised to get back to us. We are also going to have our own meeting on Wednesday (today) to review the situation but the strike continues. It is either three months salary or no talk.”

The governor had last month according to News24, said that he had no solution to the striking workers in Ekiti State, saying that he couldn't sell himself or his family to raise funds for the striking workers.

He stated that striking was not an option and that the state had inadequate funds to pay the workers as they had only received funds of N751m with the wage bill being N2b for April.
