Written by Olarotimi Oshin on March 3, 2023
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it will continue to get involved in politics in order to bring matters surrounding the welfare of workers to the front burner of programmes and policies of government.
NLC President, Mr Joe Ajaero, made the assertion during courtesy visits to some labour unions in Lagos on Thursday.
The unions include National Union of Electricity Employees; National Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions, as well as Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers.
Ajaero said that the labour movement owned the Labour Party (LP).
According to him, LP is a party that has the ideology of the working class movement with its charter of workers’ demands.
