United Labour Congress Suspends Strike

The United Labour Congress has adjourned the ongoing strike it recently embarked upon.
The president of the Congress Joe Ajaero made this pronouncement in a conversation with the journalist. The strike has been adjourned after a private meeting with the federal government on Tuesday. On his part, the minister of labour, Chris Ngige, said the union will meet with the federal government to resume negotiations on 26th of September.
It would be recalled that aviation unions affiliated to United Labour Congress, ULC, on Monday shunned directives to shut down the Nigerian airspace as the ULC began a nationwide strike.
The unions are the Association of Nigerian Aviation Professionals, ANAP; Aeronautical Information Services Association of Nigeria, AISAN; and the National Association of Air Traffic Engineers, NAAE.
The unions had earlier at a meeting with the Management Agency, NAMA, disconnect themselves from the strike.
It said that government had thus excluded the Congress, which has over 20 registered trade unions, from its intended discussion with labour on the issue of national minimum wage.
