They stated this at Heroes Square in Owerri, during 2018 May Day celebration.

According to the demands by the workers as presented by the state chairman of Trade Union Congress, TUC, Mr Paul Akalazu, gratuities had not been paid since 1998.

It will be recalled that the Imo state government entered into an agreement of 70/30 per cent salary payment formula in 2016, with the state leadership of NLC.

Akalazu said: “Sir, you are aware that the workers have been receiving percentage salaries since January 2016.

“The workers have received between 70 and 30 per cent salaries with the exception of those on grade levels 01-06 that recieve 100 per cent. The reason for the percentage salary was attributed to the national economic recession.

“The state of the pensions payment and the hardship experienced daily by pensioners in the state is having a retrospective effect on public service.

“When workers remember that the pensioners are owed between 30 and 54 months of pensions as obtained in different sectors, it kills their morale because of the uncertainty that would face them when they retire.”

Other controversial issues raised by the workers included non payment of gratuities, non-payment of salaries to Ada-Palm workers, payment of arrears owed lawyers in the Ministry of Justice, poor funding of local government councils and release of promotion exercise, among others.
