BREAKING: Labour suspends strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended the industrial strike action.

TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports organised labour embarked on the strike on Monday to press home their demand for payment of living wage in the country.

However, following intervention by the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the labour unions have agreed to suspend the strike for negotiations to continue.

President of TUC, Festus Osifo said on Tuesday in Abuja that the strike has been suspended. Osifo added that a communique would be issued shortly.

It was gathered that labour agreed to suspend the strike for five (5) days, following a joint extraordinary national executive council meeting of the NLC and TUC.

Deputy National Secretary of the Association of Air Transport Association of Nigeria (ATTSAN), Francis Akinjorin also confirmed that the action was momentary.

“It is a suspension; it is not a call-off. We are relaxing the action for one week and not suspending the strike, to give the federal government tlone week grace and test their sincerity,” Akinjorin said.
