Following the decision to suspend the proposed industrial action by labour unions in the country, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has threatened to resume the suspended strike if the federal government fails to follow through with the agreements reached at the end of their joint meeting.
The president of the TUC, Comrade Quadri Olaleye, disclosed this on Monday, September 28.
He said that the union will not hesitate to resort to strike if the FG fails to fulfill its end of the resolution.
In a related development, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, president of the Nigeria Labour Congress, has disclosed that the leadership of the organised labour will meet its various organs to brief them on the decision, The Sun reports.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that NLC and TUC have accepted deregulation as a policy.
NLC reluctantly accepted this after it was pressured by other unions. The decision was influenced by petrol marketers, tanker owners and other stakeholders.
The federal government also accepted to reverse the increment in the electricity tariffs.
Legit.ng had also reported that Labour unions suspended their planned nationwide strike scheduled for Monday, September 28.
The strike was suspended after the federal government reached an agreement with the unions following negotiations that stretched to 2:53 am on Monday morning.
The minister of state, labour, and employment, Festus Keyamo, tweeted that as part of the negotiations, the government will suspend the electricity tariff hike for two weeks pending when a committee set up would examine the justifications for the new policy.
Meanwhile, Laolu Akande, special adviser to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday, September 16, submitted that the hike in the electricity tariff is in the interest of the country.
