The letter which was signed by TUC Chairman in the State,  Comrade Fajobi Olubunmi, JNC Chairman, Comrade Folorunso Olanrewaju,  NLC Chairman Comrade Bankole Emmanuel, and the coordinating Secretary,  Adebiyi Olusegun, said after the expiration of the warning strike and the government failed to meet the Union's demand,  the workers may go on an indefinite strike from January 2nd,  2020.
