THE Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Oyo State wing has frowned at treatments being meted out to teachers, primary school teachers in particular, which has continue to affect their morale and attitude to work because the state government treats them as second class citizen, thus giving the state government, 72 hours notice to go on indefinite strike if the situation is not reversed.

This development was made known through a letter dated May 15, signed by the union’s State chairman and secretary, Comrades Z.T. Adedoyin and N.M. Abdullahi, respectively, after a meeting of the enlarged standing committee of the Union, held at the Teachers’ house, Oluyole, Ibadan.

Though the union thanked the administration of Senator Abiola Ajimobi for giving approval to backlog of promotion arrears to workers in the state, it listed issues worrying the members of the union include; non-implementation of the approval and accompany promotion benefits to the primary school teachers by the Oyo State Joint Account Allocation Committee (JAAC), delay in payment of salary to primary school teachers, delay in the promotion of grade level 14 to 15, continued withholding of 2018 leave grant and delay in the clearance of teachers allegedly accused of illegal promotion.
