Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Shutdown MTN Offices In Oyo State
NLC Shutdown MTN Offices In Oyo State. The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Oyo State chapter has shutdown offices belonging to telecommunications company, MTN across Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Mediangr.com learnt.
The mission was led by the NLC chairman in the state, Mr Waheed Olojede, executives and some members of the union marched to seal the offices for their alleged refusal to allow employees join labour unions.
Meanwhile, the organisation in a statement signed on Monday by its Corporate Relations Executive, Tobechukwu Okigbo explained that the protest by NLC where officials picketed their offices across the country was needless.
Reports reaching Mediangr.com states that MTN Nigeria has shutdown operations In Abuja and is set to leave Nigeria soon.
They also alleged that some of their workers were injured during the protest.
Olojede, however, told journalists that the 3-day closure is a warning to the conglomerate to allow the commencement of dialogue to fashion out modalities and rules of engagement.
He added that until the company decides to tow the path of decency and allow better labour relations among employees, the offices will remain closed even across the country.
The labour leader also noted that other telecom companies will be treated the same way but that the NLC decided to start with MTN because it is the largest in the country.
