Nigeria: railway workers go on strike for three days

Nigerian railway workers have started a three-day strike, launched by the Nigeria Union of Railway Workers (NUR), to push the government to improve their living and working conditions.

The strike is likely to disrupt services in some of the busy stations, including the railway line that links the northern Kaduna state to the capital, Abuja.

The union urged all workers to comply and stay out of their offices, gather together behind their district union leaders to participate actively, peacefully, and consistently throughout the thee days, without any fear or let.
