Welcome To Trade Union Congress

Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) was registered as a labour centre on 8th of August, 2005 when the then President of TUC, Comrade (Dr.) Peace Obiajulu receive the letter of registration. Prior to that date, TUC had gone through various transformations starting in 1980, first as Federation of Senior Staff Associations of Nigeria (FESSAN), then as Senior Staff Consultative Association of Nigeria (SESCAN) and, finally, TUC.

The story actually began in 1976 when the Michael Abiodun Commission was set up by the Federal Military Government to sanitise and rationalise the labour climate. Up until then you could find a labour organisation in every 50km of any Nigerian city. The situation was certainly unmanageable.

As a result of the work of the commission, certain issues were born.  They include:

  • Rationalisation of the hundreds of industrial unions in the country into forty-two industrial unions.
  • Separation of industrial unions from senior staff associations
  • Creation of four professional associations and nine employer associations

The Commission also decreed a single labour centre for the forty-two industrial unions to the exclusion of senior staff associations. 

The aims and objectives of TUC include the following:

  • To organise and unite all senior staff associations in Nigeria
  • To promote and safeguard the economic and social welfare of its members, preserving and extending their rights within a just, free and democratic society
  • To secure equitable observance of all agreements reached between the TUC and employers of labour and among TUC members themselves
  • To promote and support legislations that are in the best interest of senior staff and their associations
