Return To Work Tomorrow Else You'll Be Sanctioned - C'River Govt Threatens Striking Workers


By Obio Monday




The Cross River State Government has threatened to sanction workers under its employ who refuses to return to work tomorrow, October 13, 2021.

The Organized Labour had embarked on an indefinite strike today, October 12, to press home its grievances.

The unions listed their demands to include “payment of gratuities to our retirees of both state and local government, pending since 2014 and 2012 for state and local government retirees, respectively, remittance of deductions from workers’ salaries, full implementation of the minimum wage, implementation of promotion arrears, and reinstatement of pensioners wrongfully removed from payroll”.

But in a statement signed by the State Head of Service, Mrs. Geraldine Akpet-Ekanem, on Tuesday, the government directed all permanent secretaries and workers to resume duties tomorrow or face severe sanctions.

The statement reads:
"Following the industrial action embarked on by the Organized Labour in the State, on Tuesday, 12th October, 2021, the State Government has directed all Permanent Secretaries and Workers to return to work with effect from tomorrow, Wednesday 13 October, 2021 at 8am. This is to enable relevant officers facilitate completion of payment of salaries of Civil Servants who are yet to be paid.


The statement added that "all Civil Servants are directed to adhere strictly to this directive as failure to comply will attract severe sanctions".
