NLC threatens three-day nationwide action over Varsities strike.
Written by News Room on May 1, 2022
Plans are underway by Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to stage a three-day national protest against the ongoing strike by university workers.
The protest could, however, snowball into a nationwide down tool, if government’s inaction continues.
A communique issued at the end of its Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting in Abuja signed by the NLC President Ayuba Wabba and General Secretary Emma Ugboajah did not specify when the protest would commence.
The meeting called on the governments of Taraba, Cross River and Zamfara States to immediately commence payment of the arrears of national minimum wage owed their workers. It also called on the Abia State government to immediately clear the backlog of pension arrears owed its retirees.
