Change Of Plan: NLC Announces Nationwide Strike Over Subsidy Removal




A nationwide strike has been declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

The strike which will kickoff from Wednesday, June 7 is in response to the withdrawal of fuel subsidy by the federal government.

Recall that the union had earlier said that it had no plan to embark on strike over the withdrawal of fuel subsidy, with  Benson Upah, Head of Information and Public Affairs at the NLC telling members of the public to disregard stories in the rumour mill that it would call workers out on strike from June 2.

However, following an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Friday, the NLC said the Federal Government had until Wednesday next week to revert to the old price of N185 or face an industrial action.

Ajaero said if the ultimatum was not met, the industrial action would be followed by protests across the country.

The NEC comprises all Presidents, General Secretaries, Treasurers of all NLC’s affiliate unions; State Chairpersons and Secretaries of the NLC State Councils, Chairperson of the NLC Youth Committee and members of the National Administrative Council (NAC).
