Mr Timothy Owoeye, Osun House of Assembly Speaker, has called on workers to engage in dialogue, rather than confrontation, in settling disputes with the state government.
Owoeye gave the advice on Monday when the state Head of Service, Mr Olowogboyega Oyebade, and his team visited his office at the House of Assembly complex in Osogbo.
The speaker said that the Assembly would not relent in its efforts at wading into issues relating to workers’ welfare in the state.
He said this would be done with a view to ensuring that workers dialogue rather than embark on industrial actions.
Owoeye, however, urged the Head of Service to be proactive in the implementation of the new minimum wage for workers.
The speaker said that this would motivate the workforce and improve the running of the government.
Earlier, the Head of Service commended the speaker and members of the 6th Assembly for their arbitration efforts in matters between workers and the state government.
Oyebade called for peaceful coexistence among the lawmakers, urging them to give proper representation of their constituents.
