Breaking: FG, Labour Meet At 7pm Today Over Strike
In a bid to avert the planned strike by the organized labour expected to commence tomorrow, Monday, September 28, the Federal Government has scheduled to meet with the labour leaders by 7pm today.
Recall that government representatives and the organized labour had met on Thursday over the impending strike becuase of the increase in the prices of petrol and electricity tariff, however, the meeting ended without resolving the contentious issues.
The organised labour had accused the government of insensitivity over the implementation of the deregulation policy which led to the increase of the pump price of petrol as well as the recent hike in electricity tariff.
At the last meeting, Labour insisted that the Federal Government should revert to the old prices of petrol and electricity tariff before any meaningful discussion could take place.
