Ogun workers suspend strike

Workers in Ogun State on Friday suspended their one-week warning strike after a meeting with the officials of the state government.

The workers embarked on strike on Wednesday over minimum wage, unpaid pension contributory scheme, non-promotion of staff since 2018 and unpaid leave allowances to all employees since 2015.

The Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state, Emmanuel Bankole, disclosed this to journalists after a closed-door meeting held at the Governor’s office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
