Labour Shun Meeting With FG, Insists on Indefinite Strike – Judicial, Health, and Aviation Workers to Join Strike

Labour Shun Meeting With FG, Insists on Indefinite Strike – Judicial, Health, and Aviation Workers to Join Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress has said it will no longer enter into any negotiation with the government on a minimum wage for workers, even as it declared that workers would commence an indefinite nationwide strike on Tuesday 6/11/2018 as scheduled.  The organised labour collectively demanded an increase in minimum wage from N18,000 to N65, 000, but all parties were said to have agreed to N30,000 after over a year of negotiations. However, the government announced N24,000, while state governors settled for N22,500, a move which caused the unions to declare a strike.

According to NLC spokesperson, all trade unions in the country have agreed to embark on strike. These include the Aviation, Oil workers, Judiciary, as well as health workers.
