Federal Government meets Labour over proposed strike

The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) held a discreet meeting on Thursday with the Federal Government ahead of a possible negotiation over the controversial deregulation of the downstream sector of the oil industry. The parley was to prepare the grounds for a possible meeting to resolve the face-off as the labour unions have announced an indefinite strike starting on Monday. But the labour unions, who did not confirm the meeting with the government, insisted that the strike action would go ahead as planned. Aviation workers, under the auspices of their professional unions, have also threatened to close the airspace on Monday in solidarity with “suffering Nigerians” and in consonance with the strike declared by organised labour.
