It was gathered that some members of the Organised Labour have been compromised as stated by the Bulletin 4/2017, which is reproduced thus: “It has become necessary to inform you that after successful agreement between Govt/Organised Labour that led to the shelving of the planned strike on 30th May, 2017, some officials of Govt has constituted themselves as a Cork in the wheel of that progress.”
The Organised Labour which said the strike was indefinite, has also debunked the rumour that they rejected the promotional calculations by the Head of Service or Commissioner for Finance. They added that, it is a delay tactics to deny workers their right.
