In a bid to avert tomorrow’s nationwide protest by NLC and TUC, the federal government has called for a meeting, at 7 p.m. today, with labour.
The labour unions, NLC and TUC, are scheduled to embark on a nationwide protest against the recent increase in the prices of petrol and electricity.
There have been two earlier meetings held over the matter, including one held last Thursday, but were unsuccessful.
After Thursday’s meeting, the next meeting was initially scheduled to hold tomorrow.
According to premium times, the spokesperson of the labour ministry, Charles Akpan, confirmed the Sunday meeting in a phone interview.
“The meeting earlier scheduled for Monday 28th September 2020 is now scheduled as follows: Date: Sunday, September 27, 2020
Venue: Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa. by 7 p.m.,” he said.
Ekocitymagazine had reported how the National Industrial Court in Abuja granted an order of interim injunction restraining the NLC and the TUC from embarking on any strike. The court also ordered the police and the State Security Service to ensure no one seeking to go to work on September 28 is prevented by the two labour unions
