NLC, TUC ISSUE NATIONWIDE STRIKE NOTICE

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) have issued a 14-day nationwide strike notice to the Federal Government.

This action comes as a result of the non-implementation of a 16-point agreement reached between organized labor and the government on October 2, 2023.

The NLC and TUC leaders express their disappointment with the government’s lack of concern for the suffering and hardship experienced by the citizens.

Despite their efforts to ensure industrial peace, the government has shown little regard for the consequences of its policies.

The October 2 agreement aimed to address the adverse effects of the price hike in petroleum products and the devaluation of the naira, both of which have had severe economic consequences for the masses and workers of Nigeria.

In a statement, the NLC and TUC express their regret in resorting to such measures but state that the persistent neglect of the welfare of citizens and workers leaves them with no choice.

Effective February 9, the two labor centers have issued a stern ultimatum to the Federal Government, demanding that they honor their part of the understanding within 14 days.

The NLC and TUC stress the urgency of the situation and emphasize the need to protect and defend the rights and dignity of Nigerian workers and citizens.It is hoped that the government will take swift action to address the concerns raised by organized labor and prevent the nationwide strike from taking place.
