The workers under the aegis of the Joint Negotiating Council (JNC), in a letter dated 10th July, 2020, gave Governor Rotimi Akeredolu till Wednesday 15th July, 2020 to meet with them or they commence the industrial action.
In a letter signed by the JNC chairman, Oluwaniyi and Secretary, Kehinde Olomiye, the workers demanded for improved welfare.
The letter reads, “We write to bring to your attention the already ‘gathered cloud’ of very serious impending Labour/Government face-off which will be the very first in the life of your administration as the elected Governor of Ondo state.”
