NLC begins warning strike over minimum wage Thursday

wage: NLC goes spiritual to ensure speedy implementation
Protesting workers

The Nigeria Labour Congress has declared that it would commence an industrial action Thursday morning over the demand for a national minimum wage.

It has been engaging the government on the issue over time, but there seems to be no headway yet.

Only recently, it gave the government a 14 days ultimatum to act or face an industrial action.

The ultimatum will expires today.

In reaction to the inaction of the government, the NLC has called on its workers to be ready to for a show down.

The message issued on Tuesday was by the General Secretary of the NLC, Peter Ozo-Eson.

“Representatives of organized labour, after due consultation and meetings, have therefore agreed that all unions and our civil society allies should embark on a warning strike from midnight of Wednesday, 26th September, 2018.

“All affiliates and state councils are therefore expected to mobilise their members nationwide to ensure total compliance,” he said.
