Ekiti LG workers begin indefinite strike over unpaid salary

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, in Ekiti State, has begun their indefinite strike against the state government for not paying salary arrears.

The workers are aggrieved that despite their goodwill to the administration, the state government had failed to honour an agreement signed recently at the Joint Account Allocation Committee of September 4.

The umbrella body of local government workers in Ekiti also warned the state government against fresh recruitment exercise when it had yet to clear various arrears owed serving workers.

Rising from an emergency meeting held, on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, NULGE directed all workers to embark on strike from Friday until all contentious issues including social security; payment to Federal Inland Revenue Service were addressed.
