NLC shuns negotiation meeting with Tinubu

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has shunned the negotiation meeting called by President Bola Tinubu to stop the union from embarking on its declared two-day warning strike.

President Tinubu’s minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, convened the meeting to avert the strike that the organised labour had declared.

It was reported that the leadership of the NLC were conspicuously absent at the meeting, which was slated for 3 p.m. but started at exactly 5:32 p.m. with the leadership of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), led by its president, Festus Osifo.

NLC declares 2-day warning strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has announced the commencement of a two-day warning strike, which will begin on Tuesday, September 5, to protest the failure of the federal government to address the challenges Nigerians are facing as a result of the removal of the fuel subsidy.

The labour union that had shielded the protest after meeting with President Bola Tinubu is prepared to warn the federal government through the two-day strike.

NLC strike seeks to ground economy

The Nigerian economy might be brought to its knees from Tuesday, September 5, 2023, as the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) embarks on a Nationwide strike to protest the high standard of living, which they say is caused by the removal of the petrol subsidy.

The labour union notified the Nigerian government of a warning strike last week. Negotiations are ongoing.
