The union said it decided to embark on strike following the failure of the president Bola Tinubu’s government to enter into dialogue and engage stakeholders within the organised labour on efforts to cushion the effects of the removal of petrol subsidy “on the masses”.


The warning strike is expected to “culminate into a total strike if after 21 days, the government failed to resolve the dispute over palliatives to cushion the impact of fuel price hike.”
