Bread bakers to embark on a two-week strike
Written by broadstreet on June 27, 2022
Break makers and caterers in Nigeria are set to embark on a two-week strike from July 13, 2022, due to a hike in the prices of baking materials.
This was disclosed by the Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria (AMBCN) via a communique issued, which was signed by the association’s executives, led by Mansur Umar, its national president, after a meeting of its national executive council in Abuja.
According to the statement, the group will embark on the strike if the federal government does not give the necessary attention to their demands.
It added that the cost of flour, sugar and other materials used in the bakery business had soared beyond the reach of many bakers.
The group also said efforts to get the government’s intervention in the matter had been unsuccessful, as there had been no positive response from the concerned ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) of government.
