NEWS ALERT: NLC and TUC Suspends Nationwide Strike


After a joint national executive council meeting, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended their indefinite strike for one week.

The strike, which began on Monday, was called to protest the lack of agreement on a new minimum wage and the recent electricity tariff hike.

A communique is expected to be released soon, according to TUC President Festus Osifo.

The strike caused widespread disruptions, shutting down schools, businesses, hospitals, and airports, and also leading to a national blackout after the national grid was closed.

The labour unions and the federal government agreed to continue negotiations, with the tripartite committee set to meet daily for the next week to reach an agreement on a new national minimum wage.

The suspension of the strike is seen as a positive development, and it is hoped that the negotiations will lead to a resolution that benefits both the workers and the government.

The labour unions have expressed their commitment to reaching a fair agreement, and the government has also shown willingness to listen to their demands.

The next few days will be crucial in determining the outcome of the negotiations. If an agreement is reached, it could mark a significant step forward for workers’ rights in Nigeria. However, if the talks fail, the strike may resume, and the country may face further disruptions.

The public is watching the developments closely, hoping for a swift resolution to the impasse.
