The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has withdrawn the strike notice it served on six commercial banks on June 15 over the mass sacking of workers and redundancy in the banking sector.
The President of the NLC, Mr Ayuba Wabba, made this known on Wednesday during a media briefing in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.
He said that it was agreed that all hostilities including the strike notice should be put on hold to await the outcome of a meeting proposed by the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
Mr Wabba explained that the leadership of the NLC had been briefed by its affiliate union, the National Union of Banks, Insurance, and Financial Institutions Employees, on the extent of its engagement with the affected banks on the contentious issues.
He insisted that the banks must follow the labour law when it comes to disengaging the workers.
