FG Warns Civil Servants Against Joining Labour Strike


By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Civil servants in the country have been warned by the Federal Government against joining the proposed nationwide strike by organized labour.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, urged civil servants to ignore labour’s call to down tools and ensure they were at their duty posts as government was parleying with the union officials over the issue, adding that  a court order had restrained the NLC and TUC from embarking on any form of industrial action pending the hearing and determination of a motion on notice.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), and its affiliate unions had called on workers to embark on an indefinite industrial action on Monday over the price of petrol and electricity tariff.
