NLC, TUC to Commence Indefinite Strike Nationwide From Oct 3:The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) plan to shutdown economic activities nationwide from October 3, 2023.
This decision stems from their dissatisfaction with the government’s inability to effectively implement policies aimed at easing the hardships faced by Nigerians after the removal of the subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit.
The NLC’s national president, Joe Ajaero, conveyed this resolution during a virtual National Executive Council meeting held on Zoom.
Ajaero revealed that discussions were held with TUC officials to strategize on the way forward, and they jointly decided to communicate their stance to the government.
Initially, some NLC members opposed collaborating with the TUC, but due to perceived government inaction, they have chosen to take unified action.
