Ahead of the meeting between the Federal Government and the organised labour scheduled to hold today (Monday), the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has declared that the government must meet its demands to cushion the effect of the fuel subsidy removal or it will be left with no other option than to embark on industrial action. 


The union threatened that it would not hesitate to call out workers for industrial action, adding that it only suspended its planned strike.


It claimed that Nigerians were suffering intolerable hardship as a result of the high cost of petrol and urged the government to respond quickly to provide palliatives since the NLC anticipated an increase in the minimum wage from N30,000 to N150,000.


The Federal Government and labor unions convened on June 5, 2023, and decided to meet again on June 19 to decide on the framework for putting the resolutions reached into action.
