NLC and TUC Set to Declare Nationwide Indefinite Strike

A Joint Declaration of Strike Looms

Leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) are poised to make a significant announcement today at 3 p.m., where they will declare an indefinite nationwide strike.


Unity Amidst Differences

Recent developments indicate that the leaders of these organized labor unions have successfully resolved their differences, a crucial step leading up to the planned indefinite strike.

Previously, these differences had led to NLC undertaking a two-day warning strike, without the participation of TUC.


The Prelude: NLC’s Warning Strike

On September 5th, the NLC initiated a two-day warning strike, aiming to compel the government to address the widespread suffering experienced by Nigerians, particularly the working class.

This action serves as a precursor to the impending nationwide strike.


Unveiling the Decision

Following separate meetings held by NLC and TUC, the unions have come together to announce their decision.

At 3 p.m., a joint press briefing will take place, revealing their intentions to initiate an indefinite nationwide strike.


A Response to Socioeconomic Hardships

The labor unions’ decision stems from the Federal Government’s perceived inaction in addressing the suffering and socioeconomic challenges caused by the removal of the subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), commonly known as petrol.


As the NLC and TUC prepare to make this joint announcement, the nation awaits further details regarding the impending indefinite nationwide strike.
