TUC, NLC faction praised for backing out of strike

18 May 2016, 17:26

Lagos - A coalition of 50 other civil society organizations has commended the Trade Union Congress (TUC), a faction of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for shunning the strike being called upon by the Wabba-led NLC, Vanguard reports.

The group under the aegis The Stand Up Nigeria (SUN) described the proposed industrial action as a needless venture that was arranged to service the interest of a few minority.

National Cordinator of (SUN), Comrade Philip Agbese said it is obvious that patriotic Nigerians have resolved to support the current administration deregulation policy.

He said the action of the Federal Government at the first instance is in the best interest of the larger population of the people and no amount of intimidation should cow President Muhammadu Buhari into submission.

The Trade Unions Congress (TUC) had earlier distanced itself from a nationwide strike to set to take place under the aegis of the National Labour Congress (NLC) and the Joint Action Force (JAF).

According to the Daily Post, TUC President Bobboi Kaigama has confirmed the organization's position, claiming that "TUC is not on strike".
