The Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress have concluded plans to embark on a nationwide strike beginning from October 3, 2023, given to the failure of government to successfully implement policies to improve the living condition of Nigerians consequent to the removal of subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit popularly known as Petrol.
The strike has become imperative due to the expiration of the 21-day ultimatum given by the NLC last week.
The NLC national President, Joe Ajaero, on Tuesday in a National Executive Council meeting on Zoom, informed members of NEC that a meeting was held with the officials of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to deliberate on ways forward. Ajaero informed that the two centres have resolved to work together to make a statement to the government.
A move which was initially objected by some members of the NLC, insisting that the NLC shouldn’t work with the TUC.
“The government has not been proactive. So it is going to be a definite action this time around.” said the NLC President.
The national president of the NLC, Joe Ajaero had complained that “none of the demands put before the Federal Government had been addressed.”Follow us on social media
