NLC, TUC Call Off Strike

By Ebenezer William


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have jointly suspended the indefinite strike billed for October 3, 2023, following the removal of the fuel subsidy.
This is a rapt departure from the original plan of the Nigeria Labour Congress which had directed its affiliate member Unions across the country to mobilise and shut down the country following the refusal of the government to adhere to the seven points demand made by the NLC and the TUC to ameliorate the suffering of the teeming Nigerian Workers and the impoverished masses of the country.

The President-General of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) Comrade (Prince) Adewale Adeyanju filed HFCPSP, in the same vein equally ordered that all the nation’s Seaports, Jetties, Oil & Gas platforms and Terminals be shut down accordingly for operations.

But after the outcome of the emergency meeting summoned today, October 2, 2023, between the federal government and labour leaders was held, the NLC and TUC had jointly agreed to suspend the strike to allow for the implementation of the NLC demands. Consequently, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NLC had directed that all its affiliate members should direct their members to return to work tomorrow, October 3, 2023, as the planned indefinite strike has been suspended.

Comrade Adeyanju, the Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress had equally directed that all members of the Maritime sector should resume work tomorrow as instructed by the Nigeria Labour Congress.
