Increase in pump price/electricity: Textile workers join Nationwide strike
The National Union of Textile Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN) has directed its members across the country to join the indefinite strike action as directed by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) with effect from Monday, September 28, 2020.
This was contained in a circular dated September 25, 2020, addressed to all textile employers, copy which was made available to the media on Saturday.
The circular noted that the Union’s National President, Comrade John Adaji and Ag. General Secretary, Comrade Ali Baba formally informed their members as well as textile employers to join the strike if the federal government refused to reverse its decision on the increase in pump price and electricity tariff.
“As an affiliate of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) our members will participate in the strike action and mass protests as directed by Congress,” the union noted.
“It, therefore, mandated its branch union executives to enforce the strike directive while soliciting for full co-operation and understanding on the part of the textile employers.
To this end, the union calls on the Federal government led by President Muhammdu Buhari to listen to the voices of Nigerians and reverse the increase in the pump price of petrol and electricity tariff given the hardship they imposed on the already impoverished masses of Nigeria.
