THE SENATE on Wednesday invited the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) for a meeting to resolve the ongoing nationwide strike.
The upper chamber also resolved to ask the two labour centres to immediately suspend the strike in national interest.
The resolution was a result of a point of order raised by the Senate Leader, Opeyemi Bamidele, at the plenary.
The strike has affected activities in many public institutions across Nigeria. Senator Adams Oshiomhole, (Edo North), former President of the NLC in his contribution said “we must condemn act of brutality meted to anyone”, adding that “we have obligation not only to intervene, but find solution. We must take advantage to let government to honour all their agreement with workers”.
