The two Labour centres, Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress have declared an indefinite strike, beginning October 3rd, 2023.
Both Unions dropped the information on Tuesday, shortly after their National Executive Council meetings in Abuja.
NLC President, Joe Ajaero who spoke first, during a joint press briefing in Abuja said an indefinite strike became inevitable owing to the government’s lackadaisical stance in meeting demands raised by both unions.
To this end, Ajaero said the executive councils of both unions, having taken into consideration the stance of the government in the wake of the subsidy removal policy, left them with no option but 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.
