The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Oyo state has given the state government 72 hours ultimatum to resolve pending welfare issues of her members or face indefinite strike action.
This was contained in a letter signed by the Union’s State Chairman and Secretary, Comrades Z.T. Adedoyin and N.M. Abdullahi, respectively, after a meeting of the enlarged standing committee of the Union, held at the Teachers’ house, Oluyole, Ibadan.
The Union is angry at the government over non-implementation of the approval and accompany promotion benefits to the primary school teachers by the Oyo State Joint Account Allocation Committee (JAAC), delay in payment of salary to primary school teachers, delay in the promotion of grade level 14 to 15, continued withholding of 2018 leave grant and delay in the clearance of teachers allegedly accused of illegal promotion.
The Union resolved that unless government addresses the demands within 72 hours, it may have no other options than to direct her members to stay at home as from Monday, May 20 ,2019.
It then appealed to the primary school teachers to remain calm and awaits further directive from the Union.
