NLC Threatens To Join ASUU Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has threatened to join the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, in solidarity strike if the Federal Government failed to address the ASUU demands.

NLC President, Abdulwaheed Omar, made the threat at the opening ceremony of the “2013 Rain School” in Uyo.

“We call on the Federal Government to have meaningful dialogue with ASUU with a view to implementing the agreement.“The state governments should equally obey the law and pay minimum wage to teachers and the local government workers as well as the 27.5 per cent teacher’s enhanced salaries.

“Should these strikes persist, workers of Nigeria will not hesitate to join them in solidarity,” he stressed.
