BREAKINGS: NLC To Embark On Nationwide Strike August 2

by Admin

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has given the federal government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse all its economic policies.

The policies have stifled the poor, according to the NLC

It said that the Federal government risked an indefinite nationwide strike if the policies were not reviewed before August 2, 2023.

NLC has fixed August 2 for the commencement of the strike if their demands remained unsettled.
These policies include the recent hike in the pump price of petrol.

This is as NLC directed all its affiliates and state councils to immediately begin mobilization 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.

It was gathered that the decisions were reached at NLC’s Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House
