The Federal Government has told members of the Non-Academic Staff Union of universities, the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, and the National Association of Academic Technologists that they cannot go ahead with their planned industrial action slated to start by midnight.
Aso Naija gathered that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this in an interview with State House correspondents shortly after a meeting he had with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The minister said going ahead with the planned strike would run contrary to the International Labour Organisation’s statute on social dialogue and principles at work.
He said this was because their employers have heeded and have brought them to the table for meetings. He said the strike must not begin because the student just resumed and got out of 9 months strike.
