FG and NLC meeting to prevent an imminent strike ended in a deadlock
Glamtush reports that the meeting between the Federal Government and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to avert an imminent strike action ended on Monday without a concrete resolution to the union’s demands.
The meeting is expected to continue at a later date.
However, the minister is also expected to hold a meeting with the leadership of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) today.
Following the NLC’s threat of indefinite strike action over what the Labour Centre tagged as “anti-poor” policies propagated by the President Bola Tinubu-led administration, Lalong invited the unionists to a meeting in his office in Abuja on Monday.
The meeting had in attendance senior officials of the ministry, the national president of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, the general secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, national president of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Titus Amba among others.
Our correspondent learnt that no concrete solution was made nor was any major decision reached at the end of the meeting.
Earlier, the minister invited the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) for talks to avert the two-day strike held between September 5 and 6.
However, “only the TUC showed up for the meeting,” the ministry added.
