Subsidy issues :  Labour orders immediate suspension of indefinite strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have jointly suspended the indefinite strike billed for October 3, 2023, following the removal of fuel subsidy.

It would be recalled that the Nigeria Labour Congress had directed its affiliate member Unions across the country to mobilise and shut down the country following the refusal of government to adhere to the seven points demand made by NLC and the TUC, to ameliorate the suffering of Nigerian Workers and impoverished masses of the country.

The President-General of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) Comrade (Prince) Dr. Adewale Adeyanju fnli HFCPSP, in the same vein had equally ordered that all the nation’s Seaports, Jetties, Oil & Gas platforms and Terminals be shut down following the directives from NLC.

But after the outcome of an emergency meeting summoned on October 2, 2023, between the Federal Government and Labour leaders, the NLC and TUC had jointly agreed to suspend the strike to allow for implementation of the NLC demands.

Consequently, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NLC had directed that all its affiliate members should direct their members to return to work by October 3, 2023 as the planned indefinite strike has been suspended.

Comrade Adeyanju, the Deputy President of Nigeria Labour Congress, has equally directed all members of the Maritime sector to resume work accordingly, as instructed by NLC.
