Federal Government Approves 30-Day Labor Agreement Implementation

In a recent development, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) has granted approval for the implementation of a 30-day plan in line with the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Federal Government and the Organized Labour. Alongside this, decisive actions are being taken to prevent external bodies from interfering in union activities.

Touchaheart Nigeria reports on the specifics of this significant decision and its implications for the country’s labor landscape.

Details of the Approval

During the FEC meeting presided over by President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, and Minister of State, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, presented a comprehensive memo outlining the crucial points of the agreement.

Lalong emphasized the importance of adherence to the 15 items outlined in the agreement, highlighting the unique aspects of this particular implementation.

“We presented a memo from the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, and the memo was basically on the agreement between the government and the labour. ”

” You are already aware that 15 items are parts of the agreement,” Lalong stated.

Crucial Implementation Timeline

A critical aspect of the approval revolves around the stipulation of a strict 30-day timeframe for the demonstration of tangible progress.

This crucial point signifies the commitment of both parties to uphold their end of the bargain and foster a harmonious industrial relationship.

Lalong emphasized the significance of adhering to this timeline, ensuring that the terms of the agreement are met effectively within the specified period.

“It was agreed that within 30 days, there must be evidence of implementation, and that was the basis of presenting to the Federal Executive Council the memo, and the Federal Executive Council also approved it,” Lalong emphasized.

Resolving Union Interference

Addressing the issue of external interference in the activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lalong affirmed his dedication to resolving the ongoing crisis within the union.

He highlighted the ongoing efforts to engage with the various factions within the organization and emphasized the need to eliminate any undue external influences on union activities.

“The reason why we presented these items to the Federal Executive Council is for them to note and approve that after these things, we will not want to be tolerating interference into union activities,” Lalong remarked.
