Labour unions protest sack of LSWC staff

Workers under the aegis of the Amalgamated Unions of Public Corporations Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE) and other unions have staged a protest against the sack of the Lagos State Water Corporation (LSWC) staff.

The workers commenced the protest rally at the Ikeja under-bridge, heading towards the Lagos house of assembly complex in Alausa.

In April, the Lagos government announced the disengagement of 391 LSWC workers as part of its ongoing restructuring efforts aimed at enhancing operational efficiency and meeting the evolving demands of the corporation.

The state government said the corporation has been battling “financial and operational challenges, struggling to generate adequate revenue to meet its obligations”.

In December 2023, the state government also sacked 450 casual workers of the corporation.
