Delta Central Comrades (DCC) Frown At Gov. Okowa Military-styled Handling Of The NUT Industrial Action.

Arising from, a fruitful deliberation of Delta Central Comrades (DCC) on the lingering issue of NUT industrial actions and the Governor\'s directive; DCC been a conglomerate of intellectuals whose knowledge base was made possible by these teachers, do hereby resolves as follows that:

1. NUT is an umbrella body of all teachers, Primary and secondary schools and therefore it is not out of place for it to go on strike for any of its members.

2. The timing of the strike is in no way out of order, as NUT must have been updating the Government of her grievances before this time, and whereas Comrades target Governments, where it pinches most.

3. That Government is not owing Secondary school teachers, however, there are issues of Inter-cadre transfer, Promotions, amongst others which the Post Primary Education board is allegedly working on.

4. That the use of directives by His Excellency, The Executive Governor of Delta State, Sen. Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa as a means of settling the industrial action, is rather ill-advised, insensitive, undemocratic and he is hereby advised to seat with NUT to find lasting solutions to their grievances as a Prosperity Governor.

5. That we also plead with NUT to consider the Students and listen to Government with a bid to settling the matter amicably for the sake of our brothers and sisters. Not forgetting that the Labourer is worthy of his wages.

6. That Government henceforth should/must be proactive in all Labour matters, to nip in the bud similar occurrence from any other union. That is; grievances arising from any quarter should be painstakingly looked into as prompt as it is humanly possible.

7. That Government should work with the LGAs to ensure that the Primary school teachers are paid promptly, including all their allowances as may be necessary. Including LGA workers but not limited to them. Notwithstanding the current economic situations. If the Politicians must get their allowances, what should prevent the civil servants from getting theirs?

We consider ourselves as partners in the development of our fatherland by analysing situations critically and contributing our quarters as at when necessary, and within our powers and resources. We are therefore, expecting a more democratic approach towards laying this matter to rest as put forward in our resolutions.
