President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, has stated the strike action embarked on by labour unions in the country will continue.
He spoke after he and his team met with the national assembly for about 40 minutes behind closed-doors on Thursday evening.
“We are trying to engage government in negotiations essentially about the trade issue, about the electricity tariff but importantly about the increase in the pump price of PMS from N87 to N145 and we have assured the Senate President that at no point had we walked out on the government,” he said.
“In fact, when those issues were presented and the position of government was made known to us, we did not actually agree and we requested that we excused them.
“We have not at any point walked out on government and we are still open to discussion and dialogue because we are also doing this in the best interest of all of us as working class and also the larger population of citizens.
“But as things are now, the strike continues until needed resolutions are arrived at in further negotiations with the Federal Government.”
