The Nigerian Labor Congress, NLC, has threatened to go on a three day warning strike in solidarity with affiliate unions of universities and Nigerian students.
The union made it known to journalists on thursday via a communique jointly signed by its President, Ayuba Wabba, and its General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, after the Congress Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting.
The union gave the federal government 21 days to set up a panel whose objective would be to resolve the incessant strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and others.
“This is also occasioned by government’s failure to honour agreements reached with trade unions in our universities.
“If at the end of the national protest and the 21 days ultimatum, the Federal Government fails to resolve the industrial crises in Nigeria’s universities, the Congress would be left with no other option than to embark on three days nationwide warning strike.
“This is in solidarity with our affiliates in the universities and with Nigerian students, whose future and wellbeing are being jeopardised.”
