The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended the warning strike in Kaduna State.
Labour unions had declared a five-day warning strike against the administration of Governor Nasir El-Rufai over the mass sack of workers.
The strike had brought Kaduna to a standstill as hospitals, banks, train station, the airport, among others were shut.
The governor had dared the labour leaders, saying their action would not make him change his stance on the sacked workers.
But speaking after an emergency meeting in Kaduna on Wednesday night, the National President of NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, said the strike had been suspended.
The federal government had waded into the row between the Kaduna State government and labour unions.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had said that the federal government his Labour and Employment counterpart, Dr Chris Ngige, had intervened to resolve the dispute.
