The two day old workers strike by Ogun state civil servants continues today as Wednesday’s negotiations between the state government and the organized workers has been deadlocked.
No agreement was reached by both parties at the end of the negotiations, presided over by Governor Dapo Abioldun, at the governor’s office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.
The organized labour in a release by the Ogun labour media on Wednesday night said the labour leaders were under pressure during the meeting to sign an agreement to end the strike.
Governor Abiodun led government’s side into the talks with labour leaders from 2 pm on Wednesday and extended into the night.
Amidst demonstrations by other labour leaders awaiting the outcome of the meeting, Governor Abiodun and labour leaders emerged from the meeting.
Both sides declined to speak on the outcome of the meeting.
It is likely, government will invite labour leaders for another round of negotiations today to end the strike which has for two day running crippled services in public schools, hospitals, courts and other services.
