Osun State government and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have begun discussion on how to off-set the seven-month unpaid salary being owed workers in the state.

 

The state government confirmed this through the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola.

He said that the government was dialoguing with the labour leaders led by the Chiarman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Jacob Adekomi.

It was, however, gathered that the union and the government were yet to reach agreement on mode of paying the outstanding salaries.

While the state government was said to be urging the workers to resume duties after payment of two or three months salaries, the Labour Union  declined the offer, insisting that the only condition that could guarantee  workers’ return to duty was for the government to pay at least five months salaries.
