Strike imminent as Labour gives ultimatum

A 7-seven day ultimatum has been declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress to the federal government, to review all perceived anti-people policies, which includes review of fuel pump price, inflation and others, or face an outblown nationwide strike from August 2.

And this is just one of the decisions reached at NLC’s Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House.

The labour organisation we hear, has also gone ahead to direct all its affiliates and state councils to immediately begin mobilisation 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.

Meanwhile, resident doctors have already commenced their strike today, after taking the decision yesterday.
