This is as 247ureports.com gathered that the Governor, Mr. Sullivan Chime has vowed not to release the September salaries to the workers who participated in the said strike in September.
As gathered, the governor made the vow following a ruling by the Industrial labor court instructing both labor leaders and the state government to return to the negotiating table – and to reach a definitive resolution in 28days. The governor’s hard stance over the labor dispute has taken the labor leaders and the civil servants of Enugu aback – particularly since the parties have yet to begin negotiations.
