The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended a five-day warning strike in Kaduna State.
This was revealed by the National Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, on Wednesday.
According to him, the decision was to honour the invitation of the Federal Government on Thursday to mediate in the dispute between labour and the Kaduna State Government.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige had waded in on Tuesday after thugs disrupted the protest and after an outraged El-Rufai declared labour leader Wabba wanted and sacked striking workers.
“I am therefore constrained in the exercise of my powers as the Minister of Labour and Employment, under the Trade Disputes Act, CAP. T8, Laws of Federation of Nigeria (LFN) 2004; to invite you and your top officials to the emergency trade dispute conciliation meeting.”
The meeting is to be attended by the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai, and top officials of the State; as well as the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, and top NLC leaders at the Ministry of Labour and Employment in Abuja.
