Members of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), Oyo State chapter will on Monday, May 20, 2019, begin an indefinite strike action  to press home their demands from the state government.
In a telephone conversation with the state chairman of the union in Ibadan, Comrade Samson Adedoyin informed WESTERNPOST News that  the action was due to  the non implementation of promotion of  primary school teachers in the state, non payment of their April salary, non implementation of 2018 leave grants and others by the state government.
Said he, “Our action was due to failure  of the state government to yield to the demands of the union on salary and promotion of its members and others.”
Also speaking on the issue, the state chairman of Association  of Primary School  Head Teachers of Nigeria, (AOPSHON), Comrade Kunle Adedeji described the strike action which commence on Monday as a must to press home their demands from the state government.
Meanwhile,  the union had on Wednesday  May, 15, 2019 informed  the state government about the proposed strike if  it fails to yield to their  demands.
The leadership of the union had  met with the representatives of the state government on Friday, May 17, 2019, but none of the parties could shift ground.
The union has therefore directed its  members to begin the indefinite strike action from Monday, May, 20. 2019.
