The Trade Union Congress (TUC), has restated its commitment to improving the welfare of workers across the nation.

The Trade Union Congress (TUC), has restated its commitment to improving the welfare of workers across the nation.

The union stated this in a goodwill message during the election of officers of Labour Writers Association of Nigeria (LAWAN).
  
President of TUC, Quadri Olaleye, who is also the President of Food, Beverage and Tobacco Senior Staff Association of Nigeria  (FOBTOB), noted that most labour leaders were junketing with politicians at the expense of embattled Nigerian workers, who they ought to be protecting.
   
Represented at the occasion by National Treasurer of FOBTOB, Aderogba Adebayo, he said: “The workers are the reason why we are in existence. But most of us in the labour movement today have neglected our core responsibility of defending the right of Nigerian workers.”
   
He said the new leadership of TUC is out to advance the interests of workers everywhere, and urged all critical stakeholders to support it to achieve the goal.
    
Olaleye commended the cordial relationship existing between the congress and LAWAN, urging journalists to shun sensationalism but rather, strike a balance in their reportage.
