Minimum Wage: NLC Vows To Strike on November 6 if FG Declines  N30,000

By Lawrence Audu

The Nigeria Labour Congress NLC says it will not settle for anything less than 30,000 naira as the National Minimum Wage for workers in Nigeria.

This was the resolution contained in a communique at the end of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the Congress on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at Pascal Bafyau Labour House, Abuja.

The Union also warned of an impending indefinite national strike and industrial actions from November 6, 2018 except government accepts and commences the process of perfecting the payment of N30,000 as the negotiated and compromise new national minimum wage before that date.

The NLC NEC-in-session received the report on the conclusion of the sittings of the Tripartite National Minimum Wage Negotiating Committee that took place on October 4 & 5, 2018.

The Council took note that the Tripartite National Minimum Wage Negotiating Committee arrived at N30,000 as the figure to be recommended to the Federal Government at the conclusion of its sitting.

The Council noted with dismay how the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, tried to twist the truth by misinforming the public that the meeting of October 4 and 5, 2018 was inconclusive as the members of the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage did not agree on a figure.

The Council debunked the Minister’s claims in the media that negotiations are still ongoing on the issue of a New National Minimum Wage which implementation is already long overdue.
