Kwara State government has engaged the leadership of the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in a bid to beat the 14-day ultimatum issued to the government.

The ultimatum expires on January 26, 2024, with a slim hope that the government will meet the over 20 demands of the labour movement in the state.

Demands of the labour movement, include among others, the implementation of the N35,000 wage award for all categories of state workers.

The body is also demanding the domestication and implementation of the 40 percent peculiar allowance for workers across the state as approved and provided for workers in the federal government employment.

Also on the list of the demands is the implementation of the consequential adjustment for pensioners and weigh-in allowances for workers in the state-owned media houses.

Meanwhile, it was gathered in Ilorin on Friday that the meeting between the labour movement and the government will continue on Monday, with a resolution expected by the NLC on Tuesday.
