Labour Threatens Indefinite Strike From Friday
The United Labour Congress has threatened that workers in the country will embark on an indefinite strike if the Federal Government fails to meet its demands by Friday.
The industrial action embarked on by different unions/sectors across the country is increasing by the day, with the United Labour Congress becoming the latest to threaten a down of tools.
The threat comes barely two weeks after the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment responded to the workers through a letter, which the ULC said “largely failed to adequately address the critical issues raised in our demands.”
The union issued the strike threat after an emergency meeting of its National Administrative Committee, which was held jointly with the National Strike Committee in Lagos.
In a statement signed by the President, ULC, Joe Ajaero, the union urged Nigerians to take precaution and stock up necessities, saying, “The strike will be very effective as we hope to cripple all modes of transportation within the nation; ensure a total blackout nationwide; cut off petroleum product supplies; and disrupt banking operations, which will make life a bit more difficult for Nigerians."
