By Michael Oche, Abuja –
The planned strike by the United Labour Congress (ULC) has suffered further setback as the National Union of Banks Insurance and Financial Institutions Employees (NUBIFIE) yesterday, dissociated itself from the industrial action.
In a press statement made available to journalists, yesterday, the newly elected president of the union, comrade Abdulrasheed Lukman, pointed out that “The new leadership of the Union states categorically that the Union is not aware of and will not partake in any planned industrial action as called by the United Labour Congress. The process of engaging in industrial action is well stipulated in the laws of the land and rules of engagement.”
The aircraft pilots and engineers under the aegis of National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) had over the weekend also pulled out of proposed strike action planned for today.
A statement signed by the National president of NAAPE, comrade Galadima Abednego, said the union came to their new position after careful consideration of the situation of strike called by United Labour congress (ULC) and the review of fragile status of our Airlines
The ULC led by Comrade Joe Ajaero of the Nigerian Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) had last week threatened to embark on a nationwide strike action, threatening to shut down the nation’s refineries, power sector and other critical infrastructures.
But the ministry of Labour and Employment responded by reminding the ULC that it is not yet a registered Labour centre and will violating the labour laws.
