Ahead of the meeting between the Federal Government and the organised labour scheduled to hold today the Nigeria Labour Congress says the government must meet its demands to cushion the effect of the fuel subsidy removal.

The union threatened that it would not hesitate to call out workers for industrial action, adding that it only suspended its planned strike.

The NLC stated that the high cost of fuel was inflicting unbearable hardship on Nigerians, adding that the government must act fast with respect to providing palliatives, as they are expecting an increase in the minimum wage from 30,000 naira to 150,000 naira.

The Federal Government and labour unions met on June 5th 2023, with a resolution to reconvene today June 19 to agree on the implementation framework of the resolutions reached.
