The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has insisted organised labour would commence nationwide strike from early hours of Thursday, September 27 over the Federal Government’s delay in the implementation of a new National Minimum wage.
In a statement signed by the Secretary-General of the union, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, TUC Ozigi, explained that the decision to embark on strike was a sequel to the resolve of the Central Working Committee of TUC on September 24.
“Strike is hereby declared to commence from early hours of Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018,” Ozigi said.
The TUC Secretary-General said all workers, Civil Society Organisations and the masses are hereby put on notice to stockpile their houses for all necessary provisions and food items.
He also called on state councils to form a joint state strike implementation committee that would comprise the TUC, NLC and other stakeholders in the state to ensure effectiveness.
The TUC scribe urged union members to be alert for a further directive on or before Thursday.
