The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have issued a 14-day notice to commence a nationwide strike to the federal government.

The labour unions said the federal government had failed to implement the 16-point agreement that was reached with the unions on October 2, 2023.

The leadership of TUC and NLC said they were saddened that the government had not shown any sign of concern about the widespread suffering and adversity in the nation, despite the plan of the unions to maintain industrial peace.

This was contained in a statement released on Thursday by the unions.

“The October 2nd agreement was focused on addressing the massive suffering and the general harsh socioeconomic consequences of the ill-conceived and ill-executed IMF/World Bank-induced hike in the price of PMS and the devaluation of the naira. These dual policies have had, as we predicted, dire economic consequences for the masses and workers of Nigeria,” the statement reads.

“It is regrettable that we are compelled to resort to such measures, but the persistent neglect of the welfare of citizens and Nigerian workers and the massive hardship leave us with no choice.

“Constrained by this development and recognising the urgency of the situation and the imperative of ensuring the protection and defence of the rights and dignity of Nigerian workers and citizens, the NLC and TUC hereby issue a stern ultimatum to the Federal Government to honour their part of the understanding within 14 days from tomorrow, the 9th day of February 2024.”
