The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended the indefinite nationwide strike.
The strike which commenced on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, barely lasted for 48 hours.
CONVERSEER learned that the strike was suspended on Wednesday evening, November 15, 2023, after the unions had a discussion with the Federal Government delegation.
The team from the federal government involved in discussions with labour unions consists of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong.
The decision followed the arrest of those involved in the assault on Ajaero.
TUC President, Comrade Festus Osifo stated that the outcome of the discussions would be communicated to their respective organs.
CONVERSEER reports that the labour unions embarked on the strike as a protest against the emerging culture of state violence and impunity.
They made 6 demands, some of which include the arrest and prosecution of those involved in the brutalisation of NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero in Imo State.
