NLC threatens to shut Imo

417

Deeply concerned about the persistent and egregious violations of the rights and privileges of workers in Imo state by government the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has declared industrial action; strike and street protest against Imo State government, starting from November 1st, 2023.

NLC had ordered workers from all affiliate unions of the congres to be on the streets to press home their grievances over alleged non-payment of salaries and other unfair labour treatment against workers in the state.

NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero, hinted this to journalists on Sunday in Abuja, saying Congress has already commenced mass mobilisation of its members across affiliate unions for the showdown in Owerri

He lamented that despite repeated efforts to engage in constructive dialogue and reach amicable agreements, the Imo State Government has become a habitual and serial breaker of these agreements.

Ajaero further said that Imo State government having continued to trample on the rights of workers in the state, left them with no choice but to embark on mass protests and industrial actions beginning on the 1st day of November, 2023 to “demonstrate our outrage and stop the continuing violation of the rights and privileges of workers in the state.”

He accused the state government of relying on its powers to deploy the fierce and coercive forces of the state against trade unions and their leadership to continue on this line of action
