Indefinite strike: OPS kicks as Labour vows to shut down airports, others Tuesday

The Federal Government has invited the organised labour to a meeting in a last-minute bid to stop the planned October 3, 2023, nationwide strike announced by the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress on Tuesday.

The two unions had declared an indefinite strike with effect from Tuesday to protest the alleged failure of the Federal Government to provide post-subsidy palliatives for workers, but the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Productivity assured Nigerians it would meet with the leadership of the unions before they shut down the economy.

The spokesperson for the labour ministry, Olajide Oshundun, said the meeting scheduled for Tuesday, would be centred on the pronouncements that would be made by President Bola Tinubu during his October 1 Independence Day broadcast.

President Tinubu is expected to unveil the palliative package for workers in the customary presidential speech to commemorate Nigeria’s Independence Day.
