The Federal Government has called upon leaders from the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) to convene this afternoon in a bid to resolve the ongoing nationwide strike by Organised Labour.
This meeting, reportedly summoned by the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA), aims to address various issues, including the recent assault on NLC President Joe Ajaero and others in Owerri, Imo State, on November 1. Additionally, there are pending labor disputes in the state.
On Tuesday, the NLC and TUC announced an indefinite nationwide strike in response to the assault on Ajaero and others, as well as unresolved labor matters, such as outstanding salary arrears, the wrongful classification of 11,000 workers as ghost employees, unpaid gratuities, and non-compliance with the N30,000 Minimum Wage Act. Moreover, the labor unions cited the state’s designation of 10,000 pensioners as ghost retirees as further cause for concern.
This action follows the attack on Ajaero and other labour leaders by suspected state agents and security operatives.
