The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC has noted that it has moved the nationwide NLC protests scheduled for September 23 to September 28.
TUC Chairman in Lagos State, Gbenga Ekundayo made this update known in a statement with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday.
He noted that the postponement was for unified protests between the NLC and TUC.
The union leader further said that the federal government and organised labour were yet to reach an agreement on the new prices of electricity and petrol.
“TUC’s ultimatum ended today, NLC’s ultimatum will end on September 28. Those are two ultimatums, and the labour movement should not work that way. We have to harmonise our moves together.”
“At the national level, it was agreed that we collapse together, instead of starting something now and another joining. It was agreed that we all wait till September 28,” he said.
