The Amalgamated Union of App-Based Transport Workers of Nigeria (AUATWON), has suspended its planned indefinite strike to allow for dialogue with the government.
This is contained in a statement by the Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of the union, Jossy Olawale, on Wednesday in Lagos.
Olawale said that the union and some app companies had earlier scheduled a meeting with the ministry for June 20, but got a letter that the meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, June 26.
He said that the meeting would involve the Ministry of Labour and Employment, the app-based companies (Uber and Bolt) and the union.
The chairman expressed dismay over the challenges facing workers since the fuel pump price increased by “300 per cent”.
