Nigeria: Govt Urges NLC to Shelve Planned Warning Strike

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, has appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to rescind its planned warning strike over the new electricity tariff in the overall interest of the nation.
He made the appeal in Abuja yesterday at the 3rd Triennial National Delegates Conference of the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC).
Ngige said the dispute over the increase in electricity tariff was before the National Assembly, urging the NLC to allow the National Assembly arbitrate on the matter.
The minister advised investors in the power sector to provide decent working environment for their staff as his ministry would no longer tolerate unfair labour practices, even as he urged workers to do their best in the promotion of productivity.
