The Union is gearing up to embark on an indefinite strike over the economic hardships in the country.

The demands include a review of the minimum wage, provide a workable roadmap to the CNG alternative, fix the country’s refineries, and pay lecturers’ salary arrears.

The ultimatum terminates at the end of the week.

The Union held a second meeting with the Federal Government which ended in a deadlock on Monday.

And the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, who appeared on Channels Television on Monday, underscored the union’s frustration.

“We agree that the Federal Government has had more than enough time for the past four months and that even if there is a commitment, between now and the next four days, issues will be resolved.

“And we hope that the minister [Simon Lalong] will work with us within these next few days to make sure we resolve the problem,” he said.
