The Federal Government and the Nigerian Labour Congress will meet today, Monday, September 18, 2023, to resolve issues over the looming industrial action.
The meeting was convened by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, who said it was important for the government and the unions to sit together to resolve all pending matters to avert further disruption to the economy, according to a statement released by the Director of Information, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Olajide Oshundun
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, has again invited the Nigerian Labour Congress for another meeting over its planned indefinite strike.
“The minister, who directed the Department of Trade Union Services and Industrial Relations to convene a meeting with the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress for Monday, September 18, 2023, said it was important that the unions sit with the government to resolve all pending matters to avert further disruption to the economy,” the statement partly read
The latest invitation by the Federal Government is coming days after the NLC ended its two-day warning strike after shunning an earlier meeting with the Federal Government to embark on the strike over increasing hardship and suffering across the country caused by the removal of fuel subsidy.
The NLC had given notice of a two-day warning strike to protest the excruciating mass suffering and impoverishment experienced around the country, threatening a total and indefinite shutdown of the economy within 14 working days or 21 days after the warning strike if the government did not take steps to address the hardship being experienced across the country.
