NLC Issues Nationwide Strike Notice


The Federal Government of Nigeria has been given a seven-day ultimatum by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to reverse all perceived anti-poor policies including the recent hike in the pump price of petrol or face an indefinite nationwide strike from August 2.

It was gathered that the NLC has directed all affiliates and state councils to immediately begin mobilisation of workers and other Nigerians, including civil society allies, for a long-lasting strike and mass protests should the government fail to meet its demands.

The decision was reportedly reached at NLC’s Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House.
