NLC may go on strike Wednesday

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), at the weekend issued the Federal Government a 4-day ultimatum to revert to the old petrol pump price of N86.50 from N145 pronounced last week or risk a nationwide protest, by Wednesday, May 18, 2016, reports ITRealms.
The four-day ultimatum which is due to expire on Tuesday midnight, has put Nigerians into panic buying and stockpiling of food stuffs and daily needs.

NLC and its affiliates in a letter dated May 13, 2016 and addressed to all the state presidents, secretaries of labour unions, directed members to sensitise all their colleagues towards embarking on indefinite strike cum mass protest action slated to commence on Wednesday 18, May 2016 across the country till further notice.

NLC, therefore advised member unions including the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, to liaise with the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress in their states for further arrangements concerning the protest and give this directive a widest publicity it deserves.

ITRealms recalls that the Nigerian government last week proclaimed a new price of 145 Naira per litre of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) otherwise call fuel, on May 11, which has so far been rejected by the labour force in the country.
