Abuja - The President of Trade Union Congress (TUC), Mr Peter Esele, said in Abuja on Tuesday that trade dispute with the Federal Government over the privatisation of the power sector had not been resolved.
``The meeting was inconclusive. Both parties were not able to state all their cases,’’ Esele said.
Esele, who spoke on behalf of the NLC, told newsmen that they would continue the discussion on Wednesday.
``We held a discussion and as at this moment, I do not think we have come to any conclusion.
``We are looking at meeting again tomorrow at 4p.m.; we have made certain requests from PHCN management.
``Government also made certain requests which we are hoping would be made available tomorrow and that would help us to either move forward or to have a stalemate.
``Again government made an offer and what they were talking about is that they want to pay 15 per cent from 2004 to 2012 while the other 25 per cent would be pre-pension Act reform.
``But we are saying that the defined benefits scheme that was available should still remain in place. ’’
Earlier, the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Emeka Wogu, said he had nothing to tell the press until Wednesday.
However, Prof. Bart Nnaji, who attended the meeting, left before other personalities.
