Federal Government dilly dally over the worsening plight of the masses and not too foreseen encouragement on the Memorandum of Understanding MOU has forced the Organised Labour to alert the government that nationwide strike would begin without warning after the expiration of 30 days ultimatum.
The Trade Union Congress on Saturday 14 October
said the suspension of its October 1 nationwide strike was a temporary one.
It warned that it remained conditional upon the fulfillment of the promise by the President Bola Tinubu-led administration to fulfill the conditions enlisted in the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Federal Government and the Organised Labour.
However, no concrete implementation of the MOU.
Labour also dismissed the claim by governors that they would not implement the demands in the MoU between the Federal Government and the organised labour on the grounds that governors had rolled out palliatives for state civil servants and residents before the MoU was signed.
The National Deputy President of the Trade Union Congress, Tommy Etim, in an interview with our journalists in Abuja said the governors were making mockery of the MOU the Federal Government signed with Labour.
The organised Labour and the Federal Government had signed a 15-point agreement in the MoU, which was made public on October 1, 2023.
Speaking on reports that governors might not implement the terms of the agreement, Etim stated, “That is not possible. Anyways, the truth is that we have reached out to our people in the states to meet with them. Letters have also been sent to that effect.”
On the progress reached so far with the government, the labour leader said, “The 30-day ultimatum we gave to them is still in place. We have given them time and we are sure they are working. What we did was just a suspension. When you suspend a strike, you can kickstart it without further notice. We have done our part and we are waiting for them to play their part.”
