Electricity workers suspend strike for two weeks 


The leadership of the National Union of Electricty Employees (NUEE), says the union has suspended the ongoing strike, which led to total blackout in different parts of the country.

“The electricity workers under the joint umbrella of National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) and Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEC) agreed to suspend the industrial action, following the intervention of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige.

Speaking with journalists after the meeting on Wednesday, which lasted about four hours, the President of NUEE, Comrade Joe Ajero, said they have been asked to suspend their strike action.

“I hope that the Federal Government would act in good faith on the issues in dispute which have lingered for years, to a very dangerous point.

“He said they would take a pause on the industrial action and wait for two weeks as agreed in the meeting for the government to address their grievances.

“The President of SSAEC, Comrade Chika Ben assured the nation that the matter would be nipped in the bud before it escalates, adding that there would be no further blackout in any part of the country.”
