BREAKING: NLC suspends planned nationwide strike after Aso Rock parley
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended its planned strike over the hike in fuel price as a result of subsidy removal.
The union had mobilised for a nationwide strike, asking the Federal Government to revert to the old rate of N197 to prevent the strike.
But government had filed a suit to prevent the strike and the court ordered NLC not to go on strike.
News of the court order broke while government representatives and NLC officials were at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for continued discussions after initial deadlock.
At the end of the meeting, NLC announced that some measures had been put in place and an agreement was reached for the strike not to go on as planned.
