The federal government has invited the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, over the union’s plan to go on indefinite strike. 

The NLC is planning a nationwide shutdown owing to the removal of fuel subsidy and the hardship in the country.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Bako Lalong had directed the Department of Trade Unions Services and Industrial Relations to convene the meeting with the leadership of the NLC for this Monday 18th September saying it is important that the Union sits with government to resolve all pending matters to avert further disruption to the economy.

Lalong reiterated President Bola Tinubu’s government’s commitment to “always engage the organised labour and respond to its concerns after due consultation and negotiations.

This he says is to guarantee industrial harmony which is critical to the attainment of the Renewed Hope Agenda”.
