The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) have issued a notice of a nationwide strike, giving the Federal Government a 14-day period to respond.

 

The reason behind their dissatisfaction is the failure to implement the 16-point agreement reached between the organized labour (NLC and TUC) and the Federal Government on October 2, 2023.

Leaders of the NLC and TUC expressed their disappointment as they had made efforts to ensure industrial harmony, but the government appears unconcerned about the widespread suffering and hardship experienced by citizens.

Their grouse is the non-implementation of the 16-point agreement between organised labour (NLC and TUC) and the Federal Government on October 2, 2023.

 

The October 2 agreement was “focused on addressing the massive suffering and the general harsh socioeconomic consequences of the ill-conceived and ill-executed IMF/World Bank-induced hike in the price of PMS and the devaluation of the naira. These dual policies have had, as we predicted, dire economic consequences for the masses and workers of Nigeria.”

NLC and TUC, in a statement, lamented that “it is regrettable that we are compelled to resort to such measures, but the persistent neglect of the welfare of citizens and Nigerian workers and the massive hardship leave us with no choice.”

Effective February 9 among others, the two Labour Centres said, “Constrained by this development and recognising the urgency of the situation and the imperative of ensuring the protection and defence of the rights and dignity of Nigerian workers and citizens, the NLC and TUC hereby issue a stern ultimatum to the Federal Government to honour their part of the understanding within 14 days from tomorrow, the 9th day of February 2024.”
