The financial institutions have publicly announced that financial services will not be available on September 5th and 6th, 2023.
This directive has been communicated by the National Union of Banks, Insurance, and Financial Institution Employees (NUBIFE). The memorandum, dated September 2, 2023, bears the signature of the union’s General Secretary, Mohammed I. Sheikh.
NUBIFE’s decision to call for this strike action is in line with the strike notice previously issued by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on August 31.
NUBIFE has expressed its concerns, alleging unwarranted government interference in trade unions’ internal affairs, diverting attention from the urgent economic issues.
The notice, which has been made public, includes the following statement:
“As per the communique issued following the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Thursday, August 31, 2023, all affiliated unions are hereby instructed to instruct their members to engage in a two-day service withdrawal starting on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 5th and 6th of September 2023.
“This directive has become necessary to bring the government’s attention to and to serve as a warning against undue interference in trade unions’ internal matters, rather than addressing the severe economic challenges currently facing our nation.
“We call upon all our affiliated unions to comply with this directive by ensuring that all members refrain from their duties during the specified two-day period. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.”
