The Federal Government and theTrade Union Congress,TUC have agreed to give government two weeks to address some of the grievances of the Congress.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Solomon Lalong, stated this in Abuja at the end of a meeting with the leadership of the Congress, led by its President, Comrade Festus Osifo.

The meeting was convened by the Minister to resolve TUC’s and Nigeria Labour Congress’ differences with government and to avert pending warning strike by the organised labour.

According to Lalong, the issues for which a two-week timeline was set for their resolution, include wage award for federal civil servants to cushion the effect of rising poverty among them, and tax exemption for a certain level of workers, both in the public and private sectors.

Lalong,added that the parties also agreed that there would be no strike within the two weeks.

The President of the TUC, Comrade Festus Osifo, stated that the two-week timeline was reasonable as it would give government ample time to address the issues.
