Incessant Strikes: FG Plans Mandatory Training For Labour Leaders

The Federal Government is mulling the introduction of mandatory training for newly elected labour leaders.

The training will take place at the National Institute of Labour Studies, Ilorin Kwara state.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who made this known at the 2022 Budget Defence of the ministry at the House of Representatives in Abuja, added that this would address the incessant labour crises in the country.

Ngige said this in a statement signed by Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations in the ministry Charles Akpan.

According to Ngige, the proposed training will equip the labour leaders with the knowledge of labour laws and the International Labour Organisation ILO Conventions, in order to curb the incessant industrial disputes in the country.

The minister also noted that the ministry has made provision for the establishment of Rapid Response Labour Desk Offices across the 36 states to help nip in the bud some of the industrial crises.
