Minimum Wage: Nationwide strike to start on Thursday


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have directed their state councils and industrial unions across to mobilise workers to down tools tomorrow.

The industrial action is hinged on Federal Government’s failure to meet its demand on new minimum wage.

The NLC had given government a 14-day ultimatum to reconvene the tripartite committee, which was set up by Pres. Buhari in November, 2017, to arrive at a new minimum wage which it promised to announce and implement by the end of September 2018.

However, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, had, few weeks ago, mentioned that the new minimum wage was no longer feasible this September.
