The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has called off its scheduled strike, citing the Bola Tinubu-led federal government’s promise to meet their requests.

Labor unions called the strike in reaction to the withdrawal of fuel subsidies, which resulted in higher gasoline prices and an increased cost of living. The major goal of the strike was to put pressure on the Federal Government to overturn the shocking 200 percent increase in the price of gasoline at the pump.

The planned strike was called off after long discussions with officials from the Bola Tinubu-led government, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), and the TUC.

One of the TUC’s main demands was the introduction of a new minimum wage of 200,000.

During an interview on Tuesday, June 06, 2023, TUC Secretary General, Nuhu Toro, expressed, “Sincerely, during the meetings and negotiations with the government, they accepted all our demands. Consequently, there was no need to proceed with any industrial action.

“The purpose of issuing an ultimatum is to draw the government’s attention to our demands, and we have successfully achieved that. However, this is not the end of the matter. We will reconvene on June 19 to assess the situation.”
