After months of agony due to unpaid salaries, thousands of workers in Oyo State, will heave a sigh of relief this week, as the state government has agreed with the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress to settle them.
Vanguard reports this was disclosed by the State Chairman of NLC, Mr. Waheed Olojede in Ibadan, yesterday.
Some workers in the state are yet to be paid their March salary, while others are being owed salaries of May and June.
The state NLC boss added that payment would exclude the Local Government staff who had already collected their March and April salaries.
Olojede said, “With the sustained consultation of labour union with the Oyo State Government over the weekend, it is now clear that payment of the balance of March salary to workers in the mainstream of public service on grade level 13 and above, pensions and subventions to the judiciary and state higher institutions will commence with immediate effect.”
