The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has urged the federal government to reverse the increase in fuel pump price and electricity tariff in the next seven days or face a mass action.

TUC in a letter addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari, said Nigerians "cannot bear the burden any longer."

Correspondent reports that the federal government is billed to meet with the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) as well as other civil society organisations (CSOs) today.

But in the letter signed by TUC president, Comrade Quadri Olaleye, the labour centre said some recent actions of the government had become worrisome to the working class, their families and the masses.

He listed the actions to include sudden Increase in Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) Products pump price without any definitive and concrete efforts to make the nation's refineries functional, which has a devastating multiplier effect on the working people and their families.
