Crisis looms as Labour issues 14-day ultimatum for nationwide strike to FG

The organised labour, comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) and other affiliated labour unions in the country, on Thursday, gave the Federal Government a 14-day ultimatum to address its grievances or face  nationwide strike.   





The unions have also launched a two-day nationwide sympathy strike in support of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The action is aimed at obtaining a quick resolution of the ongoing strike by the university lecturers so that students could return to school.




The unions in a statement demanded that the Federal Government must implement a 16-point agreement they reached with the government on October 2, 2023.




“It is regrettable that we are compelled to resort to such measures, but the persistent neglect of the welfare of citizens and Nigerian workers and the massive hardship leave us with no choice,” the trade unions stated.



“Constrained by this development and recognising the urgency of the situation and the imperative of ensuring the protection and defence of the rights and dignity of Nigerian workers and citizens, the NLC and TUC hereby issue a stern ultimatum to the Federal Government to honour their part of the understanding within 14 days from tomorrow (Friday), the 9th day of February 2024.”
