The Organised Labour has suspended its planned industrial action over petrol subsidy removal by the Federal Government.

The decision was announced after meeting between a government team and leaders of the Trade Union Congress, TUC and Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC.

TUC President, Festus Osifo; NLC President Joseph Ajaero; TUC Secretary General Nuhu Torò and NLC General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja signed the resolution for the Organised Labour.

While the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Kachollom S. Daju, and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila signed for the Federal Government.

It could be recalled that the Organised Labour issued a strike notice due to begin tomorrow, Wednesday, the day after President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in his inauguration address declared that “fuel subsidy is gone”.

Justice Olufunke Anuwe, of the National Industrial Court on Monday, granted an order stopping the Organised Labour from embarking on their planned Wednesday industrial action.
