NLC, TUC plan nationwide protest, strike for Monday

The National Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, endorsed the decision of the Central Working Committee to proceed on strike on Monday, September 28 2020 to protest recent hikes in fuel prices and power tariff.

The Trade Union Congress, TUC, also vowed in a statement by its President, Comrade Quadri Olaleye and Secretary-General, Comrade Musa-Lawal Ozigi, to embark on a nationwide protest as they appealed to Nigerians to get ready for the “unprecedented mass action against corruption, obnoxious policies, rape and other violent offences, breach of Collective Agreement, unemployment, etc”.

The NEC of the NLC took the decision at the end of a meeting with members of the National Administrative Council, President and General Secretary of members of the affiliate unions and state council chairpersons and secretaries of the 36 states and FCT in Abuja.

It noted that the decision by government to increase petrol and electricity tariff must be challenged by workers, civil society groups and other labour centres.
