  • Published: , Refreshed:

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)  and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have decided to proceed with the nationwide strike, beginning on Wednesday, May 18.

The labour unions' move is despite the restraining order issued against the action by the National Industrial Court against the planned strike.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami had filed a suit challenging the proposed action of the unions.

According to Vanguard, the decision was reached at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, held on Tuesday, May 17, at the NLC headquarters in Abuja.

The indefinite strike action is expected to commence at 12 midnight.

“Our decision not to suspend the strike was further fuelled by today’s injunction by the Industrial Court,restraining us from proceeding on the strike expected to begin tomorrow,” a source told the newspaper.
