Private Sector Warns Labour unions, FG against strike

The body warned that the economic indicators were not good, adding that Nigeria could not afford another strike.

This was contained in a statement on Sunday where the organisation pleaded with the Tinubu administration and the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, to come to a reasonable agreement.

Recall that the 21-day ultimatum by the Nigerian Labour Congress, to embark on an indefinite strike expired on Friday.

The leading Labour organisation would meet on Wednesday to decide when the indefinite strike would commence

‘’The economic indicators are not good and simply put, the economy cannot afford a nationwide strike at this time.

“We have keenly watched the back-and-forth consultations between the government on the one hand and the NLC and TUC, on the other.

‘’It is evident that the series of consultations between the federal government and the labour unions have not yielded positive results and the latter has resolved, in one way or the other, to go ahead with the protest/strike,” it said.

OPSN said it was worried that both the government and the Labour unions were not giving adequate consideration to the dire situation of the country’s economy.

It also wondered if the Labour unions were considering the devastating/disruptive impact that a nationwide strike will have on the country at this time.

“One is beginning to wonder if the well-being of more than 200 million Nigerians is being factored into their negotiations,” it added.
