NIGERIA: Dialogue Before Strikes, Wogu Charges Employers, Employees

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu has called on employers of labour in Nigeria and their employees to always explore the options and opportunities offered by dialogue instead of encouraging incessant strike actions.

This, he said was necessary for national development resulting in the Ministry of Labour shifting its policy to one which advocates for regular dialogue between employers and employees so that issues can be worked out before they become knotty.

According to a statement issued by the Ministry in Abuja, Friday, Wogu made the comments at the end of a meeting with stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Abuja following the warning strike embarked on by the National Union of Petroleum and natural gas (NUPENG).

“It is expected that the days of strikes as the last option are almost over, if we maintain what has happened here today the days of incessant industrial actions will be a thing of the past,” he said.
