The Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress have declared a nationwide strike starting from Tuesday, October 3, 2023, Dockaysworld reports.

This is following what the Labour Unions tagged as the “failure” of the government to successfully implement policies to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians following the removal of the subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit.

The NLC national president, Joe Ajaero, during a virtual National Executive Council meeting which was held on Zoom, Tuesday, told members of NEC that a meeting was held with the officials of the TUC to deliberate on ways forward.

Ajaero noted that it was resolved that the two centres work together to make their stance known to the government.

The 21-day ultimatum given by the NLC ended last week.

The national president of the NLC, Joe Ajaero had complained that “none of the demands put before the Federal Government had been addressed.”

The union first observed a two-day nationwide warning strike on September 5 and 6 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.
