BREAKING: Labour Announces Indefinite Strike Over Failure To Agree On New Minimum Wage 

 

The labour unions, including the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), have announced an indefinite strike scheduled to commence on June 3, 2024.

This decision was reached due to the perceived reluctance of the Federal Government to reconsider its stance on the proposed N60,000 wage increase presented during the recent tripartite committee meeting held in Abuja.

The joint press conference held by NLC President Joe Ajaero and TUC President Festus Osifo officially communicated the unions’ intent to initiate the strike action.

 

The primary reason cited for the strike is the government’s failure to accede to the adjusted wage proposal, prompting the labor unions to take decisive action in the form of an indefinite industrial action starting in June.

Osifo stated, “As you are aware, we had the last meeting preceding today, which was on Tuesday. In that meeting, they (the government) offered N60,000. They invited us for a meeting today (Friday), and we deliberated on it, thinking they were showing the necessary commitment.

“To our surprise, there was no serious representation from either the Federal Government or the state governors who are supposed to be part of the negotiations.

 

“So, technically, we felt they have abandoned us because they remained adamant about the N60,000 offer. Not even a kobo was added to what we rightfully rejected.”
