According to the NLC spokesperson, the National Labour congress and the organized labour has suspended the strike which was scheduled for today, November 6. This is following talks with a tripartite committee which the labour leaders were part of, yesterday.

Documents were prepared, agreements were signed and it appears that some sort of agreement has been reached. The President of NLC addressed newsmen after the meeting yesterday, he said…

“The tripartite negotiating committee this evening concluded its assignment. Agreement has been reached and also documents have been signed. The report will be submitted to Mr. President tomorrow by 4:15pm.

“Therefore, as organised labour, we want to use this medium to thank all the tripartite partners for their understanding and importantly for concluding this very national assignment.

“And having reached this position, and also the fact that the assignment has been concluded, organised labour also decided that the proposed industrial action is hereby suspended”.

“Therefore, we thought this should be communicated appropriately without also any delusion or missing information”.
