Labour leaders have broken their silence after walking out on the federal government.
NLC and TUC
Organised labour has clarified that it is not considering strike action yet.
This comes after labour leaders today walked out on Federal Government during a meeting to resolve the issues of Petroleum price increase and electricity tariff.
Addressing newsmen on Monday in Abuja, Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, maintained the walk out was an expression of anger given government’s insincerity to the issues under contention.
While stressing that labour could not on its own declare strike without engaging members and following due process, he said contrary to citizen’s reactions, the labour movement has not lost focus.
