THE COMMUNIQUE ISSUED AT THE END OF EMERGENCY MEETING OF ORGANIZED LABOUR 0NDO STATE HELD ON THE 19TH JULY, 2023 AT NLC SECRETARIAT, ALAGBAKA AKURE
The Organized Labour in Ondo State comprising NLC/TUC/JNC rose from an emergency meeting held today 19th July, 2023 seriously perturbed by the insensitive increase in the pump price of petroleum product in the country weeks after a simular exercise without any attendant palliative measures to the already pauperized workers and masses of our country.
The Organized Labour in the State consequently join our well-meaning Nigerians to condemn in strong terms this wicked action of government as it is absolutely beyond the reach of the majority of our people.
Therefore the meeting resolved as follows:
That the State Government as a matter of urgency should roll out palliatnves for the workers and masses of the State to ease the agonies inflicted as a result of the hike in price of PMS.
All outstanding salaries and allowances owed the workers of the State should be paid immediately.
Any committee on palliatives set up by the State Government without the input of Ondo State Organized Labour would be outrightly rejected.
The meeting however, sympathizes with the workers and masses of our dear State and call for calm and await further directive while awaiting the outcome of our national body as the leadership will leave no stone unturned to secure a better deal for all In this time of distress.
