Happening now: Organised Labour declares nationwide strike, tells workers when to stop work

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have announced an indefinite nationwide strike due to fuel subsidy and other issues.

The organised Labour dropped the announcement in a press conference on Tuesday via zoom.

President of NLC Joe Ajaero asked workers to stop work as from 12am on October 3, 2023.

This is part of effort to show their displeasure over Federal Government’s failure to address the suffering and other socioeconomic hardships caused by the removal of subsidies on Premium Motor, PMS, commonly known as petrol.

The union first observed a two-day nationwide warning strike on September 5 and 6, 2023 to show its readiness for the indefinite strike later in the month.

Among other things, the NLC and the TUC are asking for wage awards, implementation of palliatives, tax exemptions and allowances to public sector workers and a review of the minimum wage.
