By James Sowole in Akure

The Ondo State chapter of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Friday  warned its sister union, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state to stop harassing its members that are going to their offices.

The warning was contained in  statement by the State Chairman of the TUC, who also doubles as the Secretary of the Association of Senior Civil Servants in Ondo State , Mr. Ekundayo Soladoye.

The TUC stressed that  the NLC was not supposed to be harassing its (TUC) members who were going to their offices since TUC had backed out of the strike .

“We are disappointed at the inaction of the state government in allowing the NLC and its allies to prevent our members from gaining access to their respectively offices despite several press releases that TUC and all its affiliates are not part of the strike “, he said.

The TUC  also called on the government to provide adequate security for the lives and property of its members during and after the ongoing strike action.

” The union shall hold the government responsible if any of its members suffers any form of threat, molestation or injury as a result of the strike action while performing his or her normal duties,” the union threatened .
