Minimum wage: ‘We are still on strike – NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has declared that it is still on strike.


NLC said its organs will meet to decide on the outcome of the meeting with the Federal Government.


Posting on X on Tuesday, NLC wrote: “Until we hear from Our Organs at our Meeting scheduled for today, 4th June, we are still on strike.”


On Monday, the Federal Government and the organised labour reached an agreement that might end the ongoing strike.


The organized labour embarked on an indefinite strike on Monday to push for an improved pay package for workers.


The strike led to a meeting between the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator George Akume and labour leaders in Abuja.


At the end of the meeting, it was agreed that “Further to the negotiation by the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage (NMW) and subsequent withdrawal of Labour from negotiation, the Leadership of the National Assembly intervened on 2nd June, 2024. The Organised Labour declared nationwide strike on Monday, 3rd June, 2024 to drive home its demands.


“The Federal Government, in the National interest, convened a meeting with Labour held in the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, on Monday 3rd June, with a view to ending the strike action.


“The President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria is committed to a National Minimum Wage that is higher than N60,000.”
