Don’t Go On Strike – Shettima, Governors Beg Organized Labour

The National Economic Council (NEC) has appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to shelve their planned nationwide strike.

The NEC, presided over by Vice President Kashim Shettima made the appeal during its 136th meeting held on Thursday inside the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The NEC is constitutionally headed by the Vice President, with State governors, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, amongst others as members.

The NEC on Thursday urged members to prevail on organised labour unions to shelve proposed industrial action.

Recall the organised labour comprising of the NLC and the TUC on Tuesday said their strike is set to commence on October 3.

The unions announced that workers will proceed on indefinite strike over the government’s failure to provide palliatives to cushion the effect of the removal of subsidy on petrol.
