The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said rumours that it has embarked on indefinite strike is untrue.
There were online reports that the union commenced its planned strike on Friday after its ultimatum to the federal government elapsed on Thursday.
Recall that organised labour had threatened to shut down the country’s economy to protest against the government’s failure to meet its demands.
The union is asking the federal government to provide adequate palliatives that would cushion the effects of the removal of fuel subsidy.
NLC previously embarked on a two-day warning strike on September 5 and 6, during which it issued a 14-day ultimatum.
Government’s efforts to quell the move for an indefinite strike have not yielded any fruit, as the union still insists that it would shut down the economy if its demands were not met.
While workers are waiting for further directives, online reports went viral on Friday suggesting that the union has commenced an indefinite strike.
When contacted the correspondent, NLC’s Head of Department for Information and Public Affairs, Benson Upah, said “The report is not true.”
He enjoined the general public to disregard the viral report.
