CAC To Resume Work Today As Labour Minister Intervenes

Following the intervention of the Minister of labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, the on-going industrial action by the Corporate Affairs Commission has been suspended for full conciliation. Hence, all the members of staff of the Commission are to report for work by Wednesday, July 26, 2017 by 8 o’clock in the morning.  

A statement by the Deputy Director Press in the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Samuel Olowookere said the Minister waded into the matter in exercise of powers conferred on him by the Trade Union Dispute Act of the Federation (LFN 2004) in order to ensure that the principles of social dialogue as a panacea to trade disputes is not only fully exhausted, but exploited for the benefits of all parties - employers and employees.

Consequently, a meeting between the union leadership in the Corporate Affairs Commission, the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress(NLC) and the Minister of Labour and Employment  shall hold the same tomorrow, Wednesday, July 26, 2017 by 4p.m at the Conference Hall of the Minister of Labour and Employment.

The Minister implores all the stakeholders and parties to the dispute to attend the meeting so as to   ventilate all the issues and reach a lasting solution via a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) as enunciated in the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Convention on Social Dialogue.

In the light of this, the Minister has directed the leadership of the NLC in the commission  to ask their members to return to work tomorrow and open the gates for business to re-commence at the Commission in consonance with the aspect of the law guiding apprehension of trade dispute and conciliation mechanism.
