Ajaero - NLC President


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has issued a seven-day nationwide strike notice to the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Nigerians have been grappling with socio-economic hardships resulting from what they perceive as harsh policies implemented by the current government. The NLC is demanding the reversal of all anti-poor policies, including the recent increase in the price of petrol, or else they will initiate an indefinite nationwide strike from August 2.

During a Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting held on Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House, the NLC decided to mobilize its affiliates, state councils, workers, and other Nigerians, including civil society allies, for a prolonged strike and mass protests if the government does not comply with their demands.

This is the second time the NLC has issued a nationwide strike notice since the inauguration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's administration.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), which is the umbrella body for trade unions in Nigeria, has a long history of advocating for workers' rights and improved working conditions. They have previously organized successful strikes and protests to push for better wages, social security, and improved working conditions.
