Workers of Radio Bayelsa yesterday issued a seven-day ultimatum to the station’s General Manager to speedily resolve the outstanding labour crisis in the organisation and restore industrial harmony.
The workers, under the auspices of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) and the Radio and Television, Theatre and Arts Workers Union (RATTAWU), gave the ultimatum in a joint communiqué.
It was issued at the end of a joint congress of the unions on the state of affairs at the state government-owned media house.
It was jointly signed by Messrs. Tonye Yeimoleigha, the NUJ chairman and Pius Otiti, the RATTAWU chairman, of the Radio Bayelsa chapel.
“We give the new General Manger a seven-day ultimatum to restore organisational peace in the overall interest of the station,” the unions said.
They urged the General Manager, Mr. John Idumange, to convene a meeting of members of staff to discuss pressing challenges facing the corporation.
The unions said this was to find lasting solutions to all outstanding issues, and for the smooth operations of the agency.
