Strike: FG To Hold Meeting With NLC, TUC In Aso Rock

The Federal Government is due to meet today with leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).

The Federal Government called the meeting in an attempt to establish common ground and avoid the scheduled statewide strike on Wednesday.

Last Monday, organised labour unions announced their intention to go on indefinite strike on October 3, 2023.

The union leaders' meeting with the Federal Government will take place at the Aso Rock Villa.

The meeting will begin at midday, according to sources who talked with Vanguard.

The meeting was set just days after representatives of organised labour unions refused to attend a conference organised by the Federal Government in a desperate attempt to avoid a statewide strike slated for October 3.

According to the two labour unions, the government's invitation arrived late because they had engagements outside of Abuja.

Labour leaders had requested that the meeting be rescheduled, which the government had done.

Following the termination of the Premium Motor Spirit subsidy, the labour organisations made demands of the Federal Government.

The NLC and TUC are asking for salary increases, palliative care, tax breaks and allowances for public sector workers, and a reassessment of the minimum wage, among other things.
