Industrial Strike Action Threats Blow Hot In Yet Another State

The Edo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), has threatened to embark on an industrial strike action if the state government fails to address its outstanding welfare and conditions of service.

The teachers, in a letter signed by state chairman of the union, Pius Okhueleigbe and Mike Moni Modesty Itua, State Secretary, addressed to the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, said failure by the state government to fulfil its pending demands may likely result to industrial disharmony in the educational sector.

They noted that pending issues of Teachers’ welfare and condition of service discussed and decided with the state Governor, Godwin Obaseki on the 17th of July 2020 are yet to be addressed by the government.

The leadership of the union is seeking an audience with the state governor on Thursday, 3rd December, or Friday, the 4th of December 2020, and the meeting will go a long way in providing lasting solutions to the issues raised as well as avert the looming industrial strike action.
