WARNING STRIKE: FG TO MEET NLC LEADERS ON MONDAY.

The Federal Government of Nigeria has agreed to meet with the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress on Monday to discuss the issues surrounding their request.

Recalled that the Nigeria Labour Congress has earlier issued a notice for a 2-day warning strick to Federal Government for failing to consider their request. The Federal Government in an effort to avert the warning strick scheduled to start from 5th to 6th of September by NLC agreed to meet the Nigerian Labour Congress leaders to discuss on the way forward.

Though, the labour union said there was no going back on the two-day warning strike, even as it affirms that it remained open to negotiations with the government despite breaking its previous promises.

Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris said: “Definitely, we are hoping the warning strike can be averted. They are still engaged in discussions and have started to understand each other’s position more. They will meet again on Monday, but the gaps are being closed.

You know the new minister just came in and has just begun to engage with the NLC. Going forward, you will see more expeditious engagement with the labour union. So far, tension has reduced but work is still in progress. By Monday, they will meet again and hopefully find an amicable resolution on the issue.”

On what the Federal Government plans to do concerning the 21-day strike scheduled to commence later in the month if the parties fail to reach an agreement, the minister expressed conviction that the matter would be resolved before then.
