The organised Labour in Kogi state says it has suspended its planned street protest scheduled for 29th May, 2019 over unpaid salaries
A statement by the secretaries of Nigeria Labour Congress Comrade Owoeye Oladipupo, Trade Union Congress, comrade, James Kolawole and their Joint Public Service Negotiating council counterpart, Comrade Isah Abubakar said the decision to suspend protest was reached after exhaustive deliberation by the leadership of the unions in Lokoja by 6pm on Tuesday.
They said the ongoing payment of December 2018 salary and planned uploading of January 2019 salary was the reason for the suspension of the action.
The organized Labour however said the suspension was to give government ample opportunity to do the needful by offsetting all outstanding salaries.
They also said that the leadership is watching with keen interest on what government would do on the issue of percentage salaries paid to teachers and staff of Local Government councils, adding that workers would no longer accept ridiculous percentage salary at that level.
The statement urged workers and pensioners to be law abiding, patient and await further directive on the next line of action from the leadership.
