NLC suspends strike - Bliss9ja

The Nigerian Labour Congress has suspended its ongoing strike which started on September 26, 2018.

The National President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, announced the suspension of the strike at a press conference, on Sunday, in Abuja.

The suspension means workers are expected to resume duties on Tuesday 2nd  of October 2018  as Monday Oct 1st  has been declared a public holiday by the federal government to mark the October 1 Independence Day. Declared By President Muhammadu Buhari

The workers are demanding a new minimum wage of about N50,000 instead of the current national minimum wage of N18,000.

Most state governors as well as proponents of true federalism have, however, argued that states should be allowed to set their own minimum wage especially as many states are barely able to pay the current N18,000 current minimum wage.

On Wednesday, NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, said the union was open to dialogue on the strike.

“Our demand is that the tripartite negotiating council should be called back to conclude its assignment on minimum wage.” Mr Wabba said.

The minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, then assured the unions that the tripartite committee will reconvene to complete its negotiation. The Union is Waiting For the federal Government to approved the New wages as #50,000

Before the meeting on October 4, all necessary demands by organised labour would have been factored in,” Mr Ngige said.
