Residents Hold Protest March against Poor Electricity Supply and Exploitation

No light, No payment! No light, No disconnection!

It is no news that the electricity supply crisis has jumped out of the frying pan into the fire since the private firms called GENCO’s and DISCO’s took over the PHCN. It was bad enough under the PHCN but the situation has gone much worse under the private companies which are busy disbursing darkness but reaping billions as profit.

• We call on Labour unions in the state to begin mass mobilization of workers through workers’ congresses, rallies, protest marches, mass sensitization

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), Osun State, welcomes the decision of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) in Osun State to give the Osun State government a 14-day ultimatum to pay the outstanding salaries and allowances of workers, and pensions and gratuities of retirees in the public service.

Nigeria: Fuel Shortages Show Need for Public Ownership of Oil Industry

Profiting from artificial scarcity

H.T Soweto

For weeks now, a drought of fuel has hit Nigeria, ironically Africa's top economy and largest crude oil producer. Queues have returned to petrol stations. Transport costs are rising. Where fuel is available, it goes for as much as N130 per litre and double of this price on the black market. This less than two months after outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan, just before the March 28 general elections that he lost, announced a reduction of fuel price to N87 from N97.

UNPAID SALARIES: TIME FOR A COORDINATED MASS WORKERS FIGHTBACK

NLC and TUC Must Declare a 24-Hour Warning National Strike as the Next Step

We of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) call on the national leadership of the two trade union centres, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) (of both the two factions) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), to immediately call a one-day warning nationwide strike action with mass protests over the gale of unpaid salaries of workers across the country. This should be the next step in the struggle over the issue which has already broken out in a number of states.

May Day Reports

WORKING PEOPLES' POLITICAL ALTERNATIVE IS NOT ON THE AGENDA

This year's May Day came on the heels of the split in the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) after its 11th Delegates' Conference. As a result, there were two national May Day rallies and separate factional rallies in a number of states. The Ayuba Wabba led faction, who could be considered as the official leadership having emerged at the original Delegates' Conference, held its rally in collaboration with Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Abuja. The faction led by Joe Ajaero held forth in Lagos.

PARALLEL STATE NLC CONGRESSES HELD ACROSS THE COUNTRY

TIME FOR THE REBUILDING OF THE TRADE UNION MOVEMENT AS A DEMOCRATIC FIGHTING PLATFORM

92 copies of SD Sold in Lagos and Oyo

For what can be aptly described as the continuation of the factionalisation of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), parallel State Delegates’ congresses were held across the country based on the two factions that emerged from the National Delegates’ Conference, Ayuba Wabba’s faction and Joe Ajaero’s faction. This goes to show the depth of the crisis ravaging the trade union movement and the challenge facing working class activists and genuine socialists to step up intervention with the aim of reaching out to the rank-and-file layer that is caught in the middle of the crossfire of the two factions.
