Nigerian Banks Begin 2-Day Strike On Tuesday

Nigerian banks will begin two-day warning strike on Tuesday September 5 in compliance with Nigeria Labour directives.

Bank Union in a statement notes, financial services would be withdrawn between Tuesday September 5 and Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

The National Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institution Employees (NUBIFE)’s memo was signed by the General Secretary, Mohammed I. Sheikh and all banks are to comply.

The memo issued on Monday, September 2, directs all banks to comply with the NLC strike notice of August 31.

NUBIFIE is accusing federal government of meddling in the affairs of trade unions instead of paying attention to the economy.

NUBIFIE Directive

“In line with the communique issued after the meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held on Thursday, August 31 2023, all affiliates should direct all its members to commence two days’ withdrawal of services from Tuesday & Wednesday the 5th & 6th September 2023.

“The directives is imperative to get the needed attention of government and warn it of its newfound love of meddling in the internal affairs of unions rather than address the punishing economic circumstances in which we find ourselves.

“We hereby direct all our organs to comply with this directive by ensuring all our members stay off duty for two days. Your cooperation in this regard will be appreciated.”
