The National Union of Banks, Insurance, and Financial Institutions Employees (NUBIFIE) has ordered all banks to close on September 5th and 6th, 2023.
According to a statement released, the notice is in line with the Nigeria Labour Congress’ resolution to a two-day strike action, which was made after the National Executive Council meeting (NEC) that happened on Thursday, 31 August 2023.
The statement signed by the General Secretary of the Union, Mohammed I. Sheikh, read;
“In line with the communique issued after the meeting of National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held on Thursday 31 August2023 that all affiliates should direct all its members to commence two days withdrawal of services from Tuesday & Wednesday the 5 & 6 September2023. The directive is imperative to get the needed attention of the government and warn it off its new found love of meddling in the internal affairs of unions rather than address the punishing economic circumstances we find ourselves in.
We hereby direct all our organs to comply with this directive by ensuring all our members stay off duties for the two days.”
