The Federal Government on Thursday convened a conciliatory meeting with the Kaduna State government and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to resolve the face-off between the Labour Union and the State Government.
In a meeting presided over by the Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige, which ended in a disagreement between the Government delegation and the Labour leaders, a resolution to constitute a 10-man committee comprising six state government officials and three NLC representatives to discuss and resolve the impasse was agreed upon.
According to the minister who addressed the press after the meeting disclosed that the committee chaired by the Head of Service in Kaduna State was given a mandate of up to Tuesday next week to report to him.
He also disclosed that the meeting agreed that no person shall be victimized for participating in the industrial action in Kaduna after which both parties appended their signature to the documents.
While NLC National President, Ayuba Wabba, led other labour leaders to the discussion, the Commissioner of Local Government Affairs in Kaduna, Jaafaru Sabi, represented Governor Nasir El-Rufai and the state government.
