Labour calls off warning strike, to parley FG Thursday


The organised labour on Sunday announced the suspension of its ongoing warning strike following the readiness of the Federal Government to re-open discussions on the minimum wage issue with the leadership of the workers and the OPS.

The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade Ayuba Wabba, who announced the suspension of the strike, said it became effective immediately.

He explained that the organised labour groups would attend the October 4 meeting scheduled by the Federal Government for final negotiations on the lingering minimum wage discussions.

It would be recalled that workers in the country were directed by the leadership of the NLC, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and unions to down tools last Thursday after several months of discussions over the proposed wage did not yield desired results.

Following the order, the Federal Government representatives hurriedly met with the labour leaders to avert the planned industrial action.

The meeting came too late as workers embarked on the warning strike as ordered by their leaders.
