The Organised labour has ruled out going on strike following break down in talks between them and Federal Government at the meeting to resolve the issues of Petroleum price increase and electricity tariff.

VANTAGE NEWS reported that the meeting between the Federal Government and labour leaders to discuss the hikes in electricity tariff and fuel price on Sunday produced no result as the labour leaders walked out on the government officials at the meeting.

Addressing newsmen on Monday in Abuja, Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, maintained the walk out was an expression of anger given government’s insincerity to the issues under contention.

While stressing that labour could not on its own declare strike without engaging members and following due process, he said contrary to citizen’s reactions, the labour movement has not lost focus.
