Although the National Industrial Court (NIC) had restrained them from embarking on strike, that has been jettisoned by the Unions, as they have directed all the workers in Nigeria to withdraw their services effective from midnight, 13th November 2023.

The statement read thus:

“In furtherance to the decision of the Joint National Executive Council (NEC) of NLC and TUC, all workers in Nigeria are hereby directed to withdraw their services effective midnight today, 13′” November 2023.

“Consequently, all affiliates and state councils of NLC/TUC are directed to issue circulars for maximum compliance and these circulars be made available to the National Secretariats or posted to the NEC and CWC Whatsapp Platforms.

“While we shall update you with developments as they unfold, do remain assured of our commitment to Nigerian workers and people.

“NLC/TUC stronger together!!”, the statement read.
