Labour strike update today

Legit reports that Eid el-Kabir 2024 will come up in a fortnight.

MURIC’s statement partly reads:

“Transport fares to and fro their various destinations will skyrocket.
“Movements will be so adversely affected that the whole Sallah period will become a horrendous experience. Is that what NLC wants?”

Furthermore, MURIC slammed the labour leaders, saying “the approach of the current crop of NLC leaders is aggressive, arrogant, fascist and partisan”.

The group added:

“If we cannot speak for government, what about Nigerian Muslims whose lives your strike could turn into sheer nightmare? Is this a deliberate attempt to make life uncomfortable for Muslims? Will NLC declare strike one week to Christmas? Or is this about bringing down our Muslim-Muslim ticket? Is this part of the ‘religious war’ of ‘Yes Daddy’?”

Legit reports that the NLC and TUC declared an indefinite strike, starting on Monday, June 3, 2024.

The organised labour decided to embark on industrial action after the negotiations between them and the government over the minimum wage of workers came to an impasse.
