Labour Unions Threaten Fresh Industrial Action Over Minimum Wage

The labour unions comprising of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), have threatened to resume a fresh nationwide industrial action on November 6.

As contained in a statement jointly signed by the leaders of the two labour centers, they accused the Federal Government of deliberately refusing to forward the resolutions of the tripartite committee.

The groups said they will be protesting over what they described as the government’s unwillingness to implement a new minimum wage for workers.

They alleged that after series of negotiations, the tripartite committee had reached a consensus for a minimum wage of N30,000 but the Federal Government has failed to take further necessary actions as agreed.

The statement said the organized labour will proceed on the nationwide strike action, if the Federal Government refuses to take the necessary actions on the resolutions which they describe as a concluded agreement.
