Nationwide Strike – NLC, TUC To Shutdown Economy From October 3

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have decided to embark on a nationwide strike on October 3, 2023.
The Federal Government’s failure to successfully implement policies to lessen Nigerians’ suffering led the organised labour unions to come to this decision on Tuesday.
Following the removal of the subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit, the organised labour unions had made demands to the Federal Government.
The NLC and the TUC are requesting, among other things, salary increases, the introduction of palliatives, tax exemptions and allowances for workers in the public sector, and a review of the minimum wage.
The National President of NLC, Joe Ajaero during a virtual National Executive Council meeting which was held on Zoom, Tuesday told members of NEC that a meeting was held with the officials of the TUC to deliberate on ways forward.
Ajaero noted that it was resolved that the two centres work together to make their stance known to the government.
A source who was present at the meeting who spoke with Punch noted that some members of the NLC initially objected to the development of the NLC working together with the TUC.
The source said, “Initially some members did not want us to work with the TUC but as of now, we don’t have a choice. The government has not been proactive. So it is going to be a definite action this time around.”
