United Labour Congress (ULC) Suspends Strike

The United Labour Congress(ULC) has suspended it’s two day strike.
President of the union, Joe Ajaero made this announcement after a meeting between the Labour Minister, Chris Ngige and the workers of the union in Abuja, on Wednesday.

The Labour Minister had last week threatened to sanction members of the ULC if they proceed on the strike claiming that ULC is not a registered labour movement.However, the Minister made a u-turn, regarding his earlier stance on the strike action embarked upon by ULC and commenced negotiations with the striking workers.

Ajaero said the union decided to suspend the strike after the closed-door meeting with the Minister of Labour, Ngige.The meeting was part of steps by government to resolve issues that led to the strike, which began on September 15.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, said the union and the Federal Government would resume negotiations on September 26.
