The organised labour, under the auspices of the Nigeria Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress, and the Joint Public Negotiation Council in Cross River State, have asked workers to begin an indefinite strike on Tuesday to press home their demands.

In a bulletin by the labour unions on Monday in Calabar, all state and local government workers were asked to “down tools to press home our demands.”

According to the bulletin titled, ‘Commencement of strike action,’ the worker unions said,  “Dear comrades, whereas an enlarged congress of organised labour, met on Wednesday, 6th October, 2021 at Nigerian Civil Service Union Secretariat to deliberate on the many issues troubling the workers of Cross River State; whereas the congress, after extensive deliberation, resolved that all the workers in the state and local government should down tools to press home our grievances.

“Workers are hereby called upon to stay at home, from Tuesday 12th October, 2021. Comrades stay at home until you hear from us.”

In their October 7, 2021 congress, the workers had summed up a total of 14-point demands as contained in a statement issued after the congress and jointly signed by the state Chairman of the NLC, Ben Ukpepi; and the state Trade Union Congress Chairman, Monday Ogbodum, and four other officials.
