Organized Labour in Cross River State have confirmed an earlier report by this paper, that it was in a crucial meeting with representatives of the state government led by the State Head of Service, Geraldine Ekenem.
The meeting was in attempt to resolve the three weeks old strike embarked by Labour unions in the state.
But in a bulletin released late Thursday, the Organized Labour directed civil servants in the state to remain at home, explaining that the meeting failed to yield the needed success.
The bulletin reads “we wish to inform you, and Cross Riverians at large that today’s meeting with the head of service and others from the government side ended in a deadlock”
It accused the state government of not being serious with the welfare of workers and retirees in the state.
The said they cannot continue to watch workers in the state dieing and their gratuity being denied while the governor continues to embark on bogus projects.
With this, it is unlikely when state government workers will return to work. Worse hit are young students in public schools, especially as their counterparts in other states prepares for the first term examination.
