NLC Still Insists on Total Strike Action From Wednesday
As the day draws closer for the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to embark on an indefinite strike, all heads of the union are still insisting that all workers will be forced to stop work and join the strike come Wednesday.
Mr Amechi Asugwuni, who is the Vice President of the NLC, while speaking on Sunday, sent out a serious warning that they are ready to embark on the proposed strike action, if only the federal government will reverse the price of petrol to N86.50k.
When the Vice President was asked if there has been any talks with the federal government so far on the matter, he said; “there has been none, no change on the issue so far, our strike will full commence on Wednesday.”
On the other hand, PENGASSAN and NUPENG who both has a different stand with NLC on the issue, are claiming that the government had already told all labour unions involved, before increasing the price of petrol from N86.50k to N145 per litre.
As it stands at the moment, PENGASSAN and NUPENG may not be involved in strike action as the insist that NLC had pulled out of the agreement.
