Nigerian workers have been advised to educate and organise themselves, as well as give women greater roles in unionism, so that they could be relevant in the emerging labour market.
The advice was given, on Thursdaty, by Comrade Abiodun Aremu, at the first annual Pre-May Day Seminar organised by the leaders of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE).
Aremu, who delivered a paper at the seminar noted that the changing work environment had called for better education , organisation and a need to give women greater and more demanding roles in unionism.
Aremu said that every organisation needed to stand on three pillars: organisation, education and women; to succeed.
Explaining that the days when women were regarded as spare tyres in work places and homes were over, Aremu said every man in work place and homes must regard women as those who could add values to production like their male counterparts.
