Angry Osun State civil servants this morning commenced an indefinite strike to protest over incomplete salary being paid them by the Rauf Aregbesola government.
The protesting civil servants shut all the entrances to the Abere secretariat and prevented anyone from going in. They were led by the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
The workers took over the main gate leading to the secretariat as early as 7 am to ensure total compliance to the directive of going on an indefinite strike over the modulated workers salary being received for over two years now.
The Leadership of the state NLC had last week directed their members not to return to work this week as they will no longer take half salary from the state government.
However, the chairman of the NLC, Jacob Adekomi, said the directive by the Head of Service, Festus Olowogboyega, that workers on Grade Level 1-7 resume work got the unions infuriated hence the resolve to ensure they turn any erring worker back home.
The workers are also demanding confirmation of appointments of some workers since 2012, promotion for others and stoppage of modulated salary been paid to workers and pensioners since July 2015.
