The National Leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC has cancelled it’s planned protest and strike scheduled to begin today in Port Harcourt.
The decision was reached after a close door meeting between Labour and the government of Rivers State last night to resolve amicably the demand of Labour.
Labour has come out to inform other members of the union and the public that the state government has agreed to attend to the issue of minimum wage, reopen the sealed labour office, workers promotion and others.
It is still not clear if this is a strategy by the state government and Gov. Nyesom Wike to avert the planned protest. Though Labour have warned of going back to its planned protest if the governor fails in the agreement.
True Blue Reporters recalls that the National Leadership of the NLC had fixed Tuesday 8th September as a mother of all protest in Rivers State over what it termed the use of force and autocracy on civil servants by the governor Nyesom Wike.
A decision which didn’t go well with the state government as it claimed to had secured court injunction restraining NLC from protest and strike in Rivers State even though Labour had insisted on going ahead with its protest as planned.
