NLC directs Imo workers to ‘withdraw services’




The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has directed workers in Imo State to withdraw their services.

The NLC General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, who gave the directive in a circular on Tuesday, said it was one of the resolutions taken at a joint emergency meeting of the NLC and Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) Central Working Committee in Abuja.

Ugboaja, who decried the “anti-workers practices” in Imo, said the “unfortunate development” during the May Day celebration in the state was discussed at the meeting.

He added that the directive would take effect from 12:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
