Abuja - The meeting between Federal Government representatives and oil workers in Abuja is set to continue today as talks yesterday proved inconclusive between the two parties, Punch reports.
Although it was confirmed that many resolutions were reached by the two parties, some outstanding matters were still not resolved due to the absence of the international oil companies, IOC, at the meeting.

The IOC's are facing allegations that they unfairly retrenched workers without following stipulated labour rules.
News24 Nigeria reported that Labour leaders rejected the opportunity to hold a meeting with the Federal Government as oil workers held true to their word and went on a nationwide strike despite efforts by the government to stop the action.
Workers began protesting to vent their many grievances such as a lack of a clear-cut direction on the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB and a lack of job opportunities.
