A defined level of independence must be enshrined in the respectability of the union to garner poise, veteran labour leader, Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay stated during the 2019 NLC National Leadership Retreat in Enugu.

According to him, the heavy clamp down on dissenting voices of Labour in most states was pointer to a serious disconnect between government and labour.

He called for more critical involvement of the union in the process of political participation in each state across the country.

His words, “In engaging the state governments, the NLC State officials also have to deepen the level of political education among their members. This is very important because of its entirety of activities that surrounds collective bargain.”
