Nigerian Govt seeks partnership with labour unions over workers’ welfare

The Federal Government has called for the cooperation of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in promoting workers’ welfare and national productivity.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mrs Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, who said this during a visit to the leadership of the NLC on Thursday in Abuja, added that the collaboration would enable both sides to address all issues affecting workers in the country.

She stated that the visit was part of the strategy of the Ministry to mobilise critical stakeholders to align with the government’s agenda in the labour sector.

According to her, without the cooperation of labour unions, it would be difficult for the government to better the lot of Nigerian workers.

The minister further stressed that the government is interested in the welfare of Nigerian workers, including their health and the environment in which they work.

“We are also interested in the wages they earn. We will partner with you to ensure that Nigerian workers are satisfied.

“I am sure you will cooperate with the government to make sure our economy improves; each time you embark on strike, the Nigerian economy goes down, and we incur a lot of losses,” she said.
