By: Okunade  Adekunle

United Labour Congress (ULC) has called off its indefinite strike after meeting with the federal government delegation led by the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr Chris Ngige, today in Abuja.

This was contained in a statement issued and signed by President of the United Labour Congress (ULC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, and made available to WESTERN POST.

The group stated that it took the decision in order to allow the current negotiation with the federal government to continue in a peaceful atmosphere and to avoid the impending hardship which a continuation may have meant for Nigerians.

The statement reads, “The decision to suspend the strike was taken after the meeting with the federal government delegation led by the Honourable Minister of Labour in Abuja earlier this morning”

It will be recalled that the Labour union commenced its nationwide strike at the midnight of Friday after the expiry of the 2weeks warning strike.
