Full List Of Labour Unions That Joined Nationwide Strike

At least twenty affiliate unions of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) joined the nationwide strike called by the Organised Labour.

The unions directed their workers to comply with the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) directive to embark on the indefinite strike, which began Monday midnight.

Recall that the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the labour unions on Monday, November 13, 2023, in Abuja resolved to embark on the strike to protest the attack on the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State.

The development resulted from the Federal Government’s alleged failure to address issues affecting workers, such as the minimum wage, insecurity, corruption, and poor governance.

Also, unions had made some demands, which the government had allegedly failed to address following the recent crisis in Imo that resulted in the assault of Ajaero and other members of the labour unions.

Below are some of the unions that have complied with the directives include.

1. The Academic Staff Union of Universities.
