Igbokwe said that the union leaders were mobilising for a possible showdown should another negotiation fail come Oct. 16, 2019.

“We just got a letter from the national leadership of our union to start mobilising that is if at the close of work on Oct. 16 government failed to meet up with labour’s demand we shall call workers out for strike.

“If these things are not done by the close of work on Oct. 16, then we wait for further directive from our leadership on what to do.

“I can assure you now that every state has commenced mobilisation. Workers are angry and tired.

“You cannot be probating and reprobating. You cannot come out and say I will pay and tomorrow you come out and say, I will not pay,’’ he said.

Igbokwe advised government to avert the looming strike by doing the needful.

“I am telling you that workers are angry and they are ready at any moment to down tools.

‘’All we are waiting for is instruction or a directive from our national leadership.”
