During the meeting, the government set a two-week deadline for awarding wages, tax breaks, and other benefits to public sector employees.

This is done to ease the suffering and distress the workers are experiencing as a result of the elimination of the gasoline subsidy.

According to the government, accessing the intervention fund, which was recently announced as a palliative for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises, was also being set up.

When the TUC and Minister of Labour and Employment Simon Lalong met in Abuja, the TUC was led by its President, Comrade Festus Osifo.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) did not attend the meeting because it decided to carry out its two-day warning strike that will start on Tuesday.

The brief meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes, was only attended by the TUC.

The implementation of palliatives, wage awards, tax exemptions, and allowances for public sector employees, as well as mechanisms for N70 billion SMEs and the RTEAN crisis, were just a few of the pressing concerns mentioned.

“We will address those issues over the course of the next two weeks and then re-engage in discussion,” Lalong added.

“Some of the topics we covered are ones that need to be addressed immediately.

Some will demand a significant amount of time. The debate we had revolved around this.

We decided that there shouldn’t be a strike during the next two weeks as we deliberate and seek to accomplish some of these goals.
