NLC To Embark On Warning Strike On Tuesday

1 min read

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has concluded on embarking on two two-day warning strike starting from Tuesday, 5 September 2023.

This is according to a member of the union who said: “There will be a warning strike starting from Tuesday. The national body will issue a notice soon.”

NLC is planning to go on strike due to the handling of the subsidy removal palliative by President Bola Tinubu. The union have criticised the government’s inability to roll out palliatives to cushion the ripple effect of the hike in fuel price.

Following the removal of the subsidy, the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as fuel, had increased from N189 per litre to N568 per litre between June to July.
