Just In: Labour Unions Suspend Nationwide Strike


The planned nationwide strike by the organised labour unions over a new minimum wage has been shelved for now. The strike was scheduled to start on Tuesday 7th November.

Labour leaders, government representatives and organised private sector spent hours on Monday to reach a consensus on the minimum wage.

But it was in vain as the tripartite committee decided to take the resolution of the meeting to President Muhammadu Buhari, for forward transmission to the National Assembly.

The report will be submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday by 4:15 pm.

Federal Government wants to pay N24,000 as minimum wage, but the labour leaders are maintaining their stance on N30,000.

President Buhari on Monday intervened in the impasse by pleading with the labour unions, especially the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to consider the decay his administration inherited from previous governments.

The President expounded that the present government was doing more with the ‘fewer resources’ at its disposal in putting the nation’s economy right.
