The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has announced a two-day warning strike in protest against the Federal Government’s failure to address the challenges caused by the removal of fuel subsidy.
The strike is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
This comes after the organised labour expressed their dissatisfaction with what they consider to be “anti-people” policies under President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
The NLC, along with the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and their affiliated unions, previously staged demonstrations in various locations across the country.
They demanded the reversal of policies detrimental to the less privileged citizens, including the recent increase in PMS prices and public school fees, as well as the release of withheld salaries of university lecturers and workers.
Additionally, the unions called for an upward revision of the minimum wage.
