The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said it would embark on a nationwide strike from Aug. 14, if the contempt of Court summons are not withdrawn by the initiator.

Mr Joe Ajaero, NLC Pesident said this in communique jointly signed with Mr Emmanuel Ugboaja, General Secretary of NLC in Abuja.
The communique was issued at the end of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the NLC.

It would be recalled that organised labour had embarked on a nation-wide mass protest over anti-poor policies of government,especially the removal of subsidy that had brought untold hardship to Nigerians.

NAN reports that the Federal Ministry of Justice had through the National Industrial Court (NICN) issued the leadership of organised labour summons on contempt of court for embarking on protest.

Ajaero said that NEC observed the ministry of justice through the NICN had continued to allow itself to be used as a vehicle to truncate the dominance of the tenets of democracy and muzzle/silence the voices of Nigerian workers.
