Oyo govt, labour take fight to industrial court

The Oyo State Government has dragged the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress to the National Industrial Court in Ibadan over the on-going strike which was declared on June 13.

   
  

The workers had embarked upon the strike to register their displeasure with the state government over alleged commercialisation of some secondary schools in the state.

The government asked the court to stop the strike but the court fixed Thursday for the appearance of both parties.

According to the state Chairman of NLC, Waheed Olojede: “What really happened was that the state government approached the NIC to stop labour from going on strike. But the government got it wrong because the strike had begun before it sought the order and because we had never written the government informing it that we were going on strike.

”The order was denied while the court decided to put the two parties on notice to appear before it on Thursday. The state executive of NLC did not order the strike, rather, the national body did, after seeing the plight of workers who have not been paid in the past six months.
