Tertiary workers in Ondo begins strike in Jan. Workers at Ondo State-owned universities and other academic institutions have threatened to go on strike on January 1, 2024, citing alleged non-payment of salaries and allowances.

This was said in a statement headlined ‘Why we may not resume work in January,’ published on Wednesday by the Chairman of the Joint Negotiating Council of the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa, Mr Dayo Temola.

According to Temola, who spoke on behalf of other unions in the state’s government-owned higher institutions, the decision was made during a meeting of the state’s JAC of tertiary institutions last week at the University of Medical Science in Ondo.

According to the press release, “The non-teaching staff of Olusegun Agagu University have vowed not to resume until the government resolved to implement the 2019 minimum wage and pay the wage award of N35,000 as a result of the removal of fuel subsidy.”

The unions expressed concern in the statement about the purported delay in the release of “subvention to our institution in Ondo State by the current government.”

“Based on the above, the JAC of state tertiary Institutions in Ondo State cannot guarantee industrial harmony starting from January 1, 2023.”
