Breaking: TUC Concludes NEC Meeting, to Engage FG


The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has concluded its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, which centered on the new wage award for civil servants in the country, proposed by President Bola Tinubu. This move aims to alleviate the impact of the subsidy removal on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), commonly known as petrol.

The labor center is now poised to engage in discussions with government representatives to determine whether the government’s offer has been accepted by its members.

Tommy Etim, the National Deputy President of the TUC, revealed this information during a press conference held in Abuja on Monday. Etim, who also serves as the National President of the Association of Senior Civil Servants, indicated that labor leaders had previously met and received recommendations from members of the NEC. They plan to convene a meeting with government representatives in the near future to discuss these critical issues.


He said,

“We just concluded our meeting a few hours ago and we received some recommendations from our members which we will convey to the government later today.”

Recall on Sunday, Femi Gbajabiamila, Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, disclosed that both major labor centers in the country, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the TUC, had reached certain agreements with the government. These agreements may potentially lead to the suspension of their planned nationwide strike.

Gbajabiamila asserted that the Federal Government had committed to implementing measures designed to address the disputes arising from the removal of the fuel subsidy.

After the meeting, the President of the NLC promised to consult with union members to deliberate on the offers put forth by the Federal Government, potentially paving the way for the suspension of the impending strike.
