NLC, TUC shun meeting with Federal government

Leaders of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), on Friday, shunned a meeting called by the Nigerian Government in an effort to avert the planned nationwide strike from October 3.

According to the two labour unions, government’s invitation came late as they had scheduled engagements outside Abuja, the federal capital.

The government had, on Friday, summoned an emergency meeting with the leaders of NLC and TUC in an effort to sway Organized Labour and its allies to shelve the industrial action.

The meeting, which was scheduled for Friday, 12 noon at Aso Villa Conference Room of the Office of the Chief of Staff to Mr. President, was later shifted to evening, to allow NLC and TUC to reach their leaders outside Abuja.
