The meeting between the Federal Government and the nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to prevent an impending strike action came to a conclusion on Monday without a firm answer to the requests of the union.
In an effort to prevent organised labour from starting new strike action, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, and the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, met with Joe Ajaero, the president of the NLC, and other leaders in Abuja.
The meeting is anticipated to go on later.
The minister is, however, also scheduled to meet with the TUC’s (Trade Union Congress) top brass today.
The impasse followed Lalong’s invitation to the NLC for a meeting in light of the union’s planned nationwide strike owing to the removal of fuel subsidies and the hardship in the country.
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.
