NLC, TUC Declare Nationwide Strike From Tuesday Nov 14

The organised labour unions; Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), has declared commencement of nationwide strike starting from week Tuesday November 14, 2023.
Following an extraordinary National Executive Council meeting on Tuesday in Abuja, the two unions’ leadership made the decision.
The organized labour unions following the announcement have commenced mobilisation of members and allies across the country.
The TUC and NLC came to this decision following the incident of the NLC National President Joe Ajaero who was brutalized in Imo State last week.
There had been widespread outrage by the Organised Labour accusing the Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Mohammed Barde, of complicity in the recent attack on Ajaero, in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The Organised Labour last Friday handed the Federal Government a five-day ultimatum to replace the police commissioner, while also blaming the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma for the attack on Ajaero.
The governor, however, had since said he had no hand in the attack on the labour leader.
The organised labour also demanded the arrest and prosecution of some of the governor’s aides and threatened to embark on a nationwide industrial action if their demands were not carried out.
