The Federal Government has rescheduled another meeting with the organised Labour in a bid to avert the planned strike by the labour.
The meeting is expected to start at 7m today, September 28.
It will be recalled that government representatives, Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) had met on Thursday over the impending strike occasioned by the increase in the prices of petrol and electricity tariff, but the meeting ended without resolving the contentious issues.
Consequently, it was adjourned to Monday September 28, which incidentally is the date for the commencement of the strike.
Vanguard reliably gathered that affiliate unions under the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, have mobilized to ensure that the strike is effective.
But to ensure that the strike does not hold as it is capable of crumbling the economy, the Federal Government has scheduled to meet with the labour leaders Sunday evening at the Old Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
This was made known in a statement issued by the Deputy Director/ Head of Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Charles Akpan.
It will be recalled that the organized labour had given the government September 28 deadline to revert to the old prices of petrol and electricity tariff if not they would proceed on strike.
