Organized Labour has declared a total and indefinite nationwide strike action, starting from Tuesday, November 14, 2023.
According to The PUNCH, the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, disclosed this after an emergency meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
Recall that the labour unions had threatened to embark on strike over an attack on NLC President, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State last week.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the leadership of the NLC and the TUC summoned what the unions described as an extraordinary NEC meeting.
The aim of the meeting was to review the modalities of the planned strike following the brutalisation of the National President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, review of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Federal Government and the organised labour on October 2, 2023, following the removal of the subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit which the labour centres said has caused “untold hardship” to Nigerians.
