FRCN reports that the Speaker of the House Of Representatives Dr Tajudeen Abbas, has urged the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC, to suspend any planned strike action while the parliament engages the executive.
He made the call while welcoming back members from their two months recess.
Dr Abbas also called on them to consider the various actions being taken by the Federal Government to alleviate the current hardship faced by Nigerians.
The Speaker said embarking on a nationwide strike at this point would only aggravate an already bad situation.
He gave the assurance that the House would be interfacing between the organized labour and the government to quickly work out a realistic new national minimum wage for Nigerian workers.
“On account of these economic challenges, the organized labour under the aegis of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) seems to have lost patience with the painstaking effort of the government to plan and provide sustainable minimum wage and palliatives to citizens.
“As promised earlier, this House remains committed to getting a survival wage to all Nigerian workers’’.
