BREAKING: Passengers Stranded As NLC, TUC Shut Down Lagos Airport


Jun 3, 2024

The Lagos Airport has been shut down following the industrial action called by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC.

In a video making the rounds online, intending passengers can be heard lamenting their inability to access the airport.

ADULAWO NEWS reports that the strike led to the suspension of all flight operations from the airport, and striking aviation workers are currently blocking all entry points to the domestic terminal at Lagos Airport.

Recall that organized labour had embarked on the strike to push for an improvement in the minimum wage of workers.

While organized labour is proposing N494,000 as the new minimum wage, the Nigerian government insists on paying N60,000.

In a last-minute move to end the strike, leaders of the National Assembly and organized labour met on Sunday night. The meeting, however, ended in a deadlock as the organized labour insisted on the commencement of the strike.
