The decision was communicated through “bulletin 1/2017” captioned “commencement of indefinite strike action”.
The bulletin which was dished out by the Organized Labour Action Committee arrived at the industrial action arising from an enlarged congress of Cross River State Civil/Public servants held Wednesday 24th May, 2017.
The reason for the strike according to them is “Suspension of promotion of deserving civil servants up to 2016, payroll consultant disengagement, illegal deduction of workers salary, full payment of retirees, imprest to MDA’s, resolution of NURTW impasse in Cross River State and payment of newly appointed Permanent Secretaries their salaries”.
Consequently, public offices and schools in the state have remained shut since morning.
