Recently, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, launched an attack on casualisation of the workforce in the country when it went about picketing companies, which thrived in casual labour in addition to operating a regime of poor working conditions....the NLC...has visited a number of companies and told their operators to convert their casual workforce to regular staff. In Lagos, the NLC officials visited Eleganza Industries Limited, Dunlop Nigeria Limited, Afribank Nigeria plc and West African Household and Utensils Manufacturing Company Limited, WAHUM with its picketing hammer. Chevron Nigeria Limited and Statoil Company were also picketed in the oil sector. The NLC also picketed factories of Unilever plc in Agbara, Ogun State as well as the factories of Michelin Nigeria Limited in Port Harcourt .
