Labour To Proceed On Strike Tomorrow Over Fuel Hike by misscall247: 6:47pm On May 17, 2016
By Joseph Erunke

ABUJA – THE Nigeria Labour Congress,NLC and the Trade Union Congress,TUC have resolved to proceed mobilise workers to begin indefinite strike,tomorrow over fuel hike.

The workers’ action,according to Vanguard source, is to take effect from 12 midnight today.

This was the resolution of the union at its National Executive Council,NEC meeting, held today,at the NLC headquarters in Abuja.

Although,newsmen, who waited anxiously to be briefed of the development at the meeting,were left unattended to,a source told Vanguard that the workers’ unions resolved to proceed on an indefinite strike,beginning from 12 midnight.

The source said the unions took the decision to mobilise workers on strike,after exhaustive deliberations on last week’s fuel hike by the federal government and the attendant consequences on the Nigerian workers and the general public.


“Our decision not to suspend the strike was further fuelled by today’s injunction by the Industrial Court,restraining us from proceeding on the strike expected to begin tomorrow,”the source who said.

He disclosed that the two bodies were still studying development and may not honour the meeting expected with the government at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation this evening.

Vanguard gathered that the factional NLC,led by the General Secretary of the National Union of Electricity Employees,Joe Ajaero, may not join the strike.

He had hinted yesterday that his leadership was not favourably disposed to embarking on the strike.

As at the time of filing this report, the leadership of the NLC and the TUC were yet to turn up for continuation of the meeting which was adjourned earlier.

If NLC didnt proceed with the strike 2mao, the best thing for them to do, is to send a regretful acknowledgement to the former president GEJ on Newspaper pages,bill boards and TV adverts for embarking on strike during his tenure.

If they didnt go for the strike 2mao then buhari is a Dictator!

in another news

The strike has died before its birth.

Sorry NLC and mourning mourners. Nothing for una.

The govt has asked you empty brains to come up with alternative to this deregulation instead of using the same line of "GEJ was not allowed to remove subsidy" but none of you has come up with anything reasonable. We're in different time and different situation economically from 2012.

If NLC leadership had any functioning brain, it'd be fighting for increments in workers salaries and not this lost cause. Besides, where was NLC when half of the states were owing five, six, and eight months salaries to their workers?

Useless set of toothless dogs. Una don jam person wey pass una.

History repeating itself....

Events that played out four years ago repeating itself today....!!!



ABUJA-The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has denied knowledge of any court action filed against it and therefore insists that it cannot abide by a judicial pronouncement in a matter in it was not involved. This was contained in an e-mail sent to the press last night by the NLC Acting General Secretary Comrade Owei Lakemfa. The NLC scribe Comrade Owei Lakemfa therefore urged all workers and Nigerians to ignore what it described as rumours obviously referring to a ruling by the National Industrial Court (NIC) stopping Labour from proceeding with next Monday’s strike. According to the statement: “There are rumours circulating that the Jonathan administration has purchased a black market injunction possibly from the National Industrial Court (NIC). The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is not aware of any such injunction; we were not served any paper of court appearance; we were not present in court nor were we represented in any capacity. Also, the NLC was not served any court summons nor were we served any court order.” The NLC scribe continued: “The cretins in the Jonathan administration imagine that by seeking to drag the judiciary in the mud, they can avert the general strikes, rallies and mass protests that will begin on Monday 9th January, 2012. They cannot make the simple analysis that the whole populace is angry and that Nigerians do not need any group to ask them to protest an evil policy that seeks to impoverish them.” He asked Nigerians to ignore this childish ploy and rumour adding there is no going back on next week’s protests and shutdown. He continued:”The issue of the strikes, protests against an obnoxious policy, is not an industrial relations one; it is not between an employer and an employee. Rather it is one between the Nigerian People versus the Jonathan Government.” “So if the issue was taken before the National Industrial Court, then it is the wrong place to shop for a black market injunction. To obtain an injunction from a court that has no competent jurisdiction is to try playing ping pong with the judiciary.“ He further stated that the constitutional and fundamental right of Nigerians to protest cannot be annulled.

I agree with subsidy removal but disagree with APC's lacking in agenda. So the government should agree first to pay the new minimum wage across the the board and in all states before subsidy removal can take effect.
