JUST IN: Cross River State Labour Union Suspends One-Month-Old Strike


The statewide industrial action has been suspended by leaders of organized labour in Cross River State.


The decision to suspend the industrial action was taken after a long meeting earlier today with the Head of Civil Service in Cross River State, Geraldine Ekenem.

The labour leader in a bulletin said the decision was propelled by the intervention of the traditional ruler’s council of the state.


Part of the bulletin 17 released by the Union reads “following the agreement reached with the government, through the mediation of the State Traditional Rulers’ Council, led by HRM Etinyin Etim Okon Edet, the strike action is hereby suspended forthwith”


The Union also appreciated its members for their commitment and steadfastness during the industrial action.


Meanwhile, a reliable source within the office of the head of the service said that the State government have agreed to a list of the demands by the labour Union including the contentious payment of Pension and gratuities which amounts to several billions of naira and the implementation of promotion.
