Labour strike: Katsina NLC enforces total compliance 

By Faith Awa Maji, Katsina 

Organised Labour unions in Katsina State on Monday joined their counterparts from across the country over the industrial action declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC). 

Leadership and monitoring teams of the unions converged on the NLC Secretariat on Monday morning from where they visited the Katsina State State Secretariat, NYSC orientation camp and the Turai Yar’Adua General Hospital, among some other locations.

Also commercial banks visited were under lock and key. 

The NLC Chairman, Comrade Hussaini Hamisu Yanduna, said the strike would be called off if the government does the needful. 

According to him, “you know as it is being widely informed that there is nationwide strike that commenced 12 midnight of yesterday, all workers in Nigeria are now on strike and the purpose of this strike is to inform the Nigerians and government that workers are not  happy with the way the Tripartite Committee is handling the negotiation which was supposed to be implemented since last month. The organised Labour decided to embark on the strike based on the notice served to each and every Council to commence the strike by 3rd of June, 2024 if the government failed to do the needful. 

“We have commenced and we have as instructed, a monitoring team to ensure total compliance on the strike. 

“So far, there is total compliance. The purpose of the strike was one, on the minimum wage implementation and two, on the hike in electricity tariff. 

“There has not been any obstruction because workers are aware and have experienced and once strike is being called, they comply and I am happy, all places visited by our monitoring team, there is total compliance. 

“In every strike, the first day there is one complaint or the other because some sectors will say they are yet to receive instructions but during the week after work on Friday, we received the notice and we had a meeting on Saturday and Sunday that is why even banks have complied.”
