The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), yesterday, called on the Federal Government and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to dialogue for more effective communication following the proposed national strike by NLC.
The President of LCCI, Mrs. Nike Akande, said the chamber notes with concern NLC’s decision to embark on a nationwide strike from tomorrow, adding that, Nigerian economy is already in a very fragile state with very little capacity to absorb the shocks of any major dislocations.
“The resultant hardship from a strike action at this time will be excruciating, especially for the majority of the citizens, micro and small businesses as well as the informal sector players of the Nigeria economy. This makes the dialogue option imperative,” Akande said.
“We welcome the offer by the federal government to immediately engage the leadership of the labour unions in dialogue for more effective communication on both sides,” she added.
