How We Will Stop Labour From Embarking On Indefinite Strike – FG Reveals Plans
The Federal Government of Nigeria, has vowed to stop the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) from embarking on their proposed indefinite nationwide strike.
Recall that the Organised Labour said it will commence indefinite strike on October 3, over the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.
Reacting to the proposed strike, the spokesperson, ministry of Labour and Employment, Olajide Oshundun, said;
“We will avert the strike. We got the news of their intention to go on strike. They need to be rest assured that there will be a pronouncement in the October 1 speech of Mr President for Nigerian workers.
‘’The ministry is working assiduously to meet with the second aspect of the demand which focuses on the wage award. We have already secured the release of the NURTW factional chairman.
“So we hope to invite them on Tuesday following the pronouncement of the President to see reasons for them to call off the strike.”
