BREAKING: NLC, TUC declares indefinite strike

NLC and TUc labour strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have announced an indefinite strike starting from June 3, 2024 due to the Federal Government’s reluctance to increase the N60,000 it proposed during the tripartite committee meeting in Abuja.

The strike was declared by NLC President Joe Ajaero and TUC President Festus Osifo during a joint press conference.

Osifo stated, “As you are aware, we had the last meeting preceding today, which was on Tuesday. In that meeting, they (the government) offered N60,000. They invited us for a meeting today (Friday), and we deliberated on it, thinking they were showing the necessary commitment.

 

“To our surprise, there was no serious representation from either the Federal Government or the state governors who are supposed to be part of the negotiations.

 

“So, technically, we felt they have abandoned us because they remained adamant about the N60,000 offer. Not even a kobo was added to what we rightfully rejected.
