#30, 000 MINIMUM WAGE: Labour To Declare Prolong Nation-Wide Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress as today announced that it will embark on a prolong national strike if the government refuse to do the needful, and has asked workers to be prepared for It.

The union came to this conclusion due to the inability of the government and the Nigeria governors Forum NGF to commence the process of implementing the proposed #30,000 minimum wage.

The Union's President Mr, Ayuba Wabba conveyed this message in his New year message to the Nigerian Workers.

It read:  “Government’s dilly-dallying on the issue has strained government-labour relations with a potential for a major national strike which could just be days away.

“Accordingly, we would use this opportunity to appeal to the government to do the needful by urgently transmitting the bill on the new national minimum wage to the National Assembly.

“We also would like to use this opportunity to urge workers to fully mobilize for a prolonged national strike and enforce their right.

“This strike becomes the inevitable last option for us and we crave the understanding and support of all Nigerians and businesses.

“We would want to assure workers that their labour, patience and diligence will not be in vain and that this leadership remains committed to giving all it takes to ensure that they get just and fair wages due to them in a decent work environment appropriate to their well-being”
