Some state governors have slashed workers salaries over the fact that the allocation isn’t enough to pay them.
However, it has been reported that Ondo State Civil Service workers have called on the state government to pay their full salaries, adding that they would no longer accept part salary payment.
According to reports, Ondo State government was said to have been paying salaries of the workers in the state in percentages, for the past few months.
In view of this, the State Executive and Administrative Councils of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, Ondo State Chapter, has reportedly disclosed that the workers would no longer accept partial salaries because of the high prices of essential commodities.
This was revealed in a communiqué issued after the meeting held in Akure, the state capital.
The labour union disclosed that there have been hikes in the prices of goods and services, and that paying them with percentage isn’t enough to cater for their needs.
While TUC was commending the Ondo State Health Insurance Scheme.
“The state government should not commence its implementation until all issues surrounding it like amount deductible and coverage areas of the scheme, and until arrears of salaries are fully paid and government resumes 100 per cent salary payment.”
