The meeting between members of the labour union and the Ondo state government on Thursday, June 2, 2016, ended in a deadlock.

Reports say the state government asked the striking workers to return to work, promising to pay salaries when the state gets enough funds.

The workers, during the four hour meeting, refused the government’s proposal, saying they prefer to stay away from work.

Striking workers in Ekiti state have also said they will not go back on their resolve to down tools till their salaries are paid.

The chairman of the Joint Negotiating Committee ( JNC) Sunday Adeleye, told Premium Times that the strike will continue.
