Covid-19: Ondo NLC Says No May Day Ceremony
In compliance with the directive of its national body, the Ondo state Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says there will be no ceremony in Akure to mark the Worker’s Day.
This is just as the NLC has cautioned government that it will not accept any deduction or reduction in workers’ salaries for the funding of COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement jointly signed by the Ondo state Chairman of NLC, Comrade Sunday Adeleye-Oluwole and the State Secretary, Comrade Omokehinde Shadow, said the organized labour must be duly consulted before government could effect any reduction or deduction from salaries.
Ondo NLC called on government to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and palliatives for essential members like health and Media workers in the State to cushion effects of the pandemic.
Comrade Adeleye-Oluwole appealed to government to return to the path of economic recovery to sustain the nation’s fragile economy to prevent economic meltdown after the coronavirus.
