Industrial Action: Labour Leaders Speak On Strike Action After Walking Out On FG

Owing to the petrol hike, organised labour has clarified that it is not considering strike action yet.

This comes after labour leaders today walked out on Federal Government during a meeting to resolve the issues of Petroleum price increase and electricity tariff.

Addressing newsmen on Monday in Abuja, Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, maintained the walk out was an expression of anger given government’s insincerity to the issues under contention.

While stressing that labour could not on its own declare strike without engaging members and following due process, he said contrary to citizen’s reactions, the labour movement has not lost focus.
