NLC, TUC To Shelve Planned Strike — Gbajabiamila

NLC and TUC Planned Strike Suspended

Sequel to high-level consultations between the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union (TUC) Congress leaders, and the representatives of the Federal Government, the NLC, on Monday night, confirmed that it will no longer proceed with its nationwide strike planned for Wednesday. 

The brewing agitation has been necessitated by the government's unilateral withdrawal of the fuel subsidy without provisions for adequate palliatives for the masses and workers who suffer the effects most..

The resolution was announced by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and confirmed by the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, after a nearly six-hour meeting between the Federal Government and the organised labour at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. 

At Monday’s meeting, the parties agreed that “The NLC would suspend notice of strike forthwith to enable further consultations.

“The TUC and the NLC to continue ongoing engagements with the Federal Government and secure closure on the resolutions.

“The labour centres and the Federal Government to meet on June 19, 2023, to agree on an implementation framework."
