Planned Strike by NLC and TUC Suspended for Two Weeks

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have decided to suspend their planned strike, which was originally scheduled to commence on Wednesday. This resolution was reached on Monday night following a meeting between representatives of the Federal Government and the Organised Labour.

The primary topic of discussion during the meeting, held at the Presidential Villa, was the removal of fuel subsidy. Femi Gbajabiamila, the newly-appointed Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, confirmed the outcome of the meeting to State House correspondents.

As part of the agreement, a joint committee comprising the Federal Government, TUC, and NLC will be established. This committee will review any proposed wage increase or award, as well as establish a framework and timeline for implementation.
