Subsidy Removal: We Are Not Aware Of Court Order To Halt Strike — NLC

Subsidy Removal: We Are Not Aware Of Court Order To Halt Str

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has stated that it is unaware of the court order restraining it from embarking on its planned industrial action over the fuel subsidy removal.

The National Industrial Court gave the order on Monday but in his reaction, NLC President Joe Ajaero said the strike will still begin on Wednesday.

In a chat with Punch, Ajaero disclosed that the union is not aware of the court order as it came after the close of business for the day.

“The industrial court order came late after the close of business today.

“So the NLC is not aware of it and it is not even mentioned in the meeting.

“By tomorrow (today), they won’t find anybody at the NLC office to serve it to because, by then, we will all be on the field mobilising for the strike”, he said.

“Strike will commence on Wednesday except otherwise directed by the National Executive Council”, Ajaero added.

Electricity workers are poised to join in the strike action on Wednesday and revealed that power supply will be cut on that day.

The decision was communicated in a memo dated June 2, and signed by its General Secretary, Dominic Igwebike, the National Union of Electricity Employees.
