ASUU Strike 2013: NLC To Ground Nigeria With Solidarity Strike

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has warned that it may soon declare solidarity strike in support of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

NLC President, Abdulwahed Omar, gave this hint on Wednesday in a communique issued at the end of a National Executive Council (NEC).

According to him, if all efforts at resolving the industrial crisis fails, the NLC would then be left with no choice than to join the strike.

He also disclosed that leadership of the Congress would be meeting with the Vice President, Namadi Sambo in Abuja Thursday over the ongoing face-off.

He said: “The organs of Congress have spoken and have directed the intervention of the Congress towards resolving the matter.

“This is why the leadership of Congress would be meeting with the Vice President tomorrow (today) with ASUU so that we can find amicable solution to the disagreement. We have not said we will not declare sympathy strike if the need be.”
