Written by Kayode Sanni on July 22, 2022
The National Union of Civil Engineering Construction, Furniture and Wood Workers have threatened to shut down activities in the construction industry in solidarity with striking unions in the education sector.
The union made the threat in a statement jointly signed by its National President, Mr. STEPHEN OKORO, and General Secretary, Mr. IBRAHIM WALAMA, on Friday.
The union said that it was putting its members at alert for the solidarity strike in line with the decision of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
The union expressed worry that the lingering ASUU strike would impact negatively on students’ academic performances while it urged the Federal Government to resolve conflicts with ASUU, NASU and SSANU without further delay.
