“For me, NLC leadership are only playing to the gallery and if care is not taken, I will lead the call for it’s ban. Labour unions should not be found playing political games and should be apolitical. They should not wait until they are ban by federal government or court.
What is the percentage of workers in the nation, they are minority and should not just take the people for granted lest we lead call for their ban.”
