In a desperate attempt to avert the looming nationwide strike, the Nigerian government has called for an emergency meeting with the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and their Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC, counterpart.
According to Vanguard, the meeting will be convened later this evening at Aso Villa, Conference Room of the Office of the Chief of Staff to the President.
It was gathered that the government had earlier fixed the meeting for 12 noon today.
However, it had to be shifted to evening to enable Organised Labour to reach out to their leaders outside Abuja.
According to sources, the NLC and its TUC counterpart received the government’s invitation this morning through the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
