MAY DAY 2017: Labour Relations in Economic Recesion

    May Day, Labour Day, International Workers’ Day are some of the appellations for May 1st. It is a public holiday in Nigeria.

    It began in Europe as a traditional spring celebration to welcome Summer while the first Monday of every May is usually a bank holiday for labourers and workers. The US and Canada observe same workers’ holiday on the first Monday of September. The Catholic church dedicates 1 May to Saint Joseph the worker. What began as a pagan holiday is now celebrated with marches and rallies across the world.

    In Nigeria, it is also a day of speeches and demands for better working conditions and remuneration, by Labour Union leaders. This year, as with several others before, labour is asking for a raised minimum wage for civil servants. As usual, there is a statement from government applauding workers and promising to provide better conditions.

    May 1st is simply another good excuse for workers to put up their feet. By good coincidence this year, it falls on a Monday. By all means, do enjoy your long weekend. If you know of any rallies or march taking place to honour the day, do join and remember to keep it peaceful.
