Minimum Wage: We’ll resume the nationwide indefinite strike on Tuesday, if… — Nigerian workers

The Organised Labour has vowed to resume the suspended nationwide indefinite strike if their demands are not met by Tuesday, June 11, 2024.

Recall that the workers, under the umbrella of the organs of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), gave the federal government one-week grace period last Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

Speaking in an interview with Channels Television on Monday, June 10, Chris Onyeka, an Assistant General Secretary of the NLC, said: “The Federal Government and the National Assembly have the call now. It is not our call.

Our demand is there for them (the government) to look at and send an Executive Bill to the National Assembly, and for the National Assembly to look at what we have demanded, the various fact of the law, and then come up with a National Minimum Act that meets our demands.

If that does not meet our demand, we have given the Federal Government a one-week notice to look at the issues and that one week expires tomorrow (Tuesday). If after tomorrow, we have not seen any tangible response from the government, the organs of the Organised Labour will meet to decide on what next.” (Continue reading on next slide.)
