Trade Unions Hail Lagos Over Workers Welfare



Trade Union leaders in Lagos State have lauded the State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode for improved welfare of the state workers.

Chairman, Lagos State Public Service Joint Negotiating Council (NJC), Comrade Obafemi Oyenubi who spoke on behalf of Trade Union leaders at the Retreat organised by the State Ministry of Establishments, Training, and Pensions for Trade Union Leaders in the state at Epe, Lagos State said the state has continued to lead other States in the country by showing how workers should be treated.

He said although there are issues that still need to be resolved, the state still remains the best labour friendly state in the country.

He said: “It is gratifying to note that our state is rated the best labour friendly state in Nigeria. There is mutual understanding and relationship for peaceful coexistence that exist between the unions and the state government. Though, there are issues that still need to be addressed, as far as we are and Nigerians are concerned, Lagos remains the best labour friendly state.”

The government through Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, he said, ensures that staff welfare is a priority adding that the current administration takes salary payment seriously.

To him, “There is a lot of difference between salary and welfare. It is not only salaries that workers need to check. There are a lot of other things that are beneficiary to us than even giving us N60,000 minimum wage and the governor has created through his infrastructural development an enabling environment for us to work.”

Commissioner for the Ministry, Dr. Akintola Benson while speaking on, “Industrial Harmony and Sustainable Productivity in Lagos State” at the event called on the Union and other stakeholders in the human resource and industrial relations arm of the state to be proactive and not rest on their oars.
