Electricity workers threaten strike Today
Nigeria electricity supply dilemma could deteriorate from today, Wednesday, as the organized labour has authorized workers in the power sector to begin an indefinite strike over pending issues with the Transmission Company of Nigeria.
The workers under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees, convened at the Abuja national headquarters of the TCN on Tuesday as a preamble to the proposed strike.
As contained a circular titled, ‘Call to Action,’ which was addressed to senior assistant general secretaries and zonal organising secretaries, dated August 15, 2022, the general secretary of the NUEE, Joe Ajaero, directed electricity workers to ensure total compliance, promising to paralyse operations of the TCN nationwide over anti-masses activities.
Furthermore, the union remarked that the strike was in protest of a directive by the TCN Board mandating all PMs in acting capacity going to the Annual General Meeting to appear for promotional interview.
