Workers in Osun State are now saying that they began to receive payment alerts starting on Friday June 26, 2015 in the afternoon.
Sources in the state have revealed that labour unions rejected the option by the government to pay them two to three months and return to their duty posts.
They insisted that workers should collect nothing less than five months worth of salary before they would call off the on-going strike.
Jacob Adekomi, The State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), is said to have made the decision during a meeting with government officials in the state.
The government however made it clear that there is no way it could raise five months salaries at once presently, and that the payment would have to be gradual.
