0 140

The Federal Government has called the leader of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) to a meeting this afternoon in an attempt to terminate the continuing statewide strike by Organised Labour.

The Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) called the conference, which is anticipated to address the issues that inspired the strike. These include the reported abuse of NLC President Joe Ajaero by security personnel in Owerri, Imo State, and unpaid salary arrears for laborers.

In response to the events in Imo State and in protest of various labor issues, such as the unjust designation of 11,000 workers as ghost employees, unpaid gratuities, noncompliance with the N30,000 minimum wage act, and the designation of 10,000 pensioners as ghost retirees, the NLC and TUC announced an indefinite nationwide strike on Tuesday, November 14.
