Leaders of organised Labour failed to show up at a meeting with the federal government called to try to avert the strike that has been scheduled to commence on Tuesday next week.
The meeting had been slated to take place at 3 p m on Friday in the chief of staff’s office to the president inside the presidential villa in Abuja.
The federal government has refused to meaningfully engage and reach agreements with organised Labour on critical issues of the consequences of the unfortunate hike in the price of petrol, which has unleashed massive suffering on Nigeria workers and masses.”
It was not clear why the labour stayed away or whether the meeting has been rescheduled for another date.
But as of 5.30 pm, no members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had showed up even though the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, was on hand.
