The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have jointly suspended the indefinite strike action billed for October 3, 2023 following the removal of fuel subsidy.

It would be recalled that NLC had directed its affiliate member Unions across the country to mobilise and shut down the country following the refusal of government to adhere to the seven points demand made by the NLC and the TUC to ameliorate the sufferings of the teeming Nigerian Workers and the impoverished masses of the country.

In a statement signed by Comrade John Kennedy Ikemefuna, Head of Media, MWUN, the President-General of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN), Comrade Adewale Adeyanju in the same vein, equally ordered that all the nation’s Seaports, Jetties, Oil & Gas platforms and Terminals be shut down accordingly for operations.

But after the outcome of emergency meeting summoned today, October 2, 2023, between the federal government and labour leaders was held, the NLC and TUC jointly agreed to suspend the strike to allow for implementation of the NLC demands.

Consequently, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NLC had directed that all its affiliate members should direct their members to return to work tomorrow, October 3, 2023 as the planned indefinite strike has been suspended.
