Both the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have announced their intention to embark on an indefinite strike from October 3, 2023.
The two unions confirmed this on Tuesday, shortly after their National Executive Council (NEC) meetings in Abuja.
NLC President, Joe Ajaero explained that said an indefinite strike became inevitable owing to government’s lackadaisical stance in meeting demands raised by both unions.
To this end, Ajaero said NECs of both unions having taken into consideration the stance of government in the wake of the subsidy removal policy, left them with no option than to call for an indefinite strike.
On his part, President of the Trade Union Congress, Festus Osifo said they resolved that beginning from October 3rd all workers are expected to withdraw their services.
