The organised labour has suspended its strike scheduled for today (Monday) after a meeting between labour leaders and the Federal Government. The meeting between the Federal Government and organized labour lasted for many hours from Sunday night through Monday morning.
The decision to suspend the strike followed an agreement reached between both parties and averts a nationwide strike which would have grounded economic activities in the country.
Organized labour, however, stressed that the strike was suspended not called off and it could be recalled if the government doesn’t hold up its end of the deal made at this meeting in the next two weeks.
As part of the agreement, the Federal Government will suspend the electricity price tariff hike and has set up a committee to look into what the labour minister described as conflicting field reports justifying the hike in electricity tariff. Channels TV
