Fashola blames misconception for industrial disharmony

08 April 2016, 21:42

Abuja - The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has blamed some employees for lack of harmony between government and labour.

Speaking in Abuja at the National Delegate’s Conference, an event that would culminate in the election of officials to run the affairs of the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied companies (SSAEAC), he called for unity among all stakeholders.

“We are all part and parcel of common purpose, hence trade unions and associations are platforms to ventilate our collective concerns on issues of common interests,” said Fashola.

The Minister appealed to workers to change their approach to enhance unity between government and workers.

 The President Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, Bobboi Bala Kaigama, assured Government in that regard.

“We are responsible labour unions,” said Kaigama.

“We don’t just go on strikes without first exploring dialogue which would bring to fore our grievances, after which we sign agreements. We go ahead with strikes if at the end, parties to agreements renege on their implementation,” said Kaigama.
