NLC, TUC SEND A 14-DAY NATIONWIDE STRIKE NOTICE
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) have issued a 14-day notice of a nationwide strike to the Federal Government.
Their grievance arises from the non-execution of the 16-point agreement between organized labour (NLC and TUC) and the Federal Government on October 2, 2023.
The NLC and TUC leaders have voiced concern that, despite organized labour's diligent efforts to foster workplace harmony, the government seems indifferent to the widespread suffering and hardship.
NLC and TUC, in a statement, bemoaned that “it is regrettable that we are compelled to resort to such measures, but the persistent neglect of the welfare of citizens and Nigerian workers and the massive hardship leave us with no choice.”
“Constrained by this development and recognising the urgency of the situation and the imperative of ensuring the protection and defence of the rights and dignity of Nigerian workers and citizens, the NLC and TUC hereby issue a stern ultimatum to the Federal Government to honour their part of the understanding within 14 days from tomorrow, the 9th day of February 2024.”
