BREAKING: Labour Declares Indefinite Strike Over Minimum Wage


May 31, 2024

The organised labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Friday announced the commencement of a nationwide indefinite strike starting from Monday, June 3rd, 2024.

The action comes as a direct response to the deadlocked negotiations with the government over the proposed minimum wage and the recent controversial increase in electricity tariffs.

It was gathered that negotiations finally collapsed on Friday after 7th attempts by the 37 members tripartite committee to reach a definite new minimum wage figure for Nigerian workers.

The organised labour expressed frustration over the government’s lack of commitment and representation at the negotiation meeting on Friday.

Although the Federal Government at an earlier meeting this week shifted ground from the previous N57,000 to a new proposal of N60,000.

However, the organised labour again rejected the offer even though they reduced their demand from N497,000 stance of last week to N494,000.
