NLC, TUC Declare Nationwide Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, have declared a nationwide strike over the failure of the Federal Government to meet their demands.

The Labour unions announced on Tuesday that the action would commence on October 3, 2023.

The two Unions took the stand on Tuesday, shortly after their National Executive Council meetings in Abuja.

NLC President, Joe Ajaero, who spoke first, during a joint press briefing in Abuja said an indefinite strike became inevitable owing to the government’s lackadaisical stance in meeting demands raised by both unions.

To this end, Ajaero said the executive councils of both unions, having taken into consideration the stance of the government in the wake of the subsidy removal policy, left them with no option but to call for an indefinite strike.

On his part, President of the Trade Union Congress, Festus Osifo said they resolved that beginning from October 3rd all workers are expected to withdraw their services.
