Leaders of organized labour in Cross River State have suspended the state wide industrial action.
After an extended meeting with the Head of Civil Service, Geraldine Ekenem earlier today, the labour leader in a bulletin said the decision was as a result of intervention by 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 appreciated her members for their doggedness and steadfastness during the industrial action.
However, highly placed sources within the office of the head of service told our reporter that the State government have agreed to 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.
