The Federal Government (FG) is set to meet with the leaders of organized labour Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) by 3 p.m. on Monday.
The meeting between the federal government and the labour leaders is aimed at averting the looming strike action in the country.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, disclosed this during an ongoing press briefing.
He explained that he had not met with the labour leaders today because he didn’t get adequate briefs from relevant departments before now.
Lalong appealed to the leadership of TUC and the NLC to prevail on all its affiliate unions to shelve their scheduled two-day and planned total shutdown in 21 days.
