NLC, TUC issue 14-day strike notice

The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, have issued the Federal Government a 14-day notice of a nationwide strike.

Their decision was made following the failure of the government to implement the 16-point agreement between the NLC, TUC and the Federal Government last year.

The leaders of Congress expressed worry about the government’s negligence, saying despite their efforts to encourage harmony in the work environment, the government appeared unperturbed by the suffering citizens faced in the country.

In a statement released by the NLC and TUC today, they said, “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,” the statement said.

The Federal Government, in the October 2, 2023 agreement, had agreed to implement a N35,000 minimum wage for civil servants, among other issues, but it is yet to honour any of the issues.
