NLC issues seven-day nationwide strike notice Over Subsidy Removal

The Nigeria Labour Congress has put plans in place for a nationwide strike scheduled to begin August 2,2023.


Confirming this , the national treasurer of the NLC, Hakeem Ambali, said, the congress has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to conclude all negotiations with labour or face industrial actions.


Though a court order which barred the congress from going on strike in June still stands, the congress noted that it could not fold its arms while Nigerians continued to suffer the effects of subsidy removal which has led to untold hardship.


Recall that the Tinubu administration dragged the organised labour to court earlier in June to prevent a nationwide strike following the initial removal of the subsidy on petrol.
