The organized labour of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), have decided to embark on a fresh nationwide industrial action on November 6th 2018.
In the statement jointly signed by the leaders of the two labour centres, they accused the Federal Government of deliberately refusing to forward the resolutions of the tripartite committee.
They claimed that after a series of negotiations, the committee had reached a consensus for a minimum wage of N30,000 but the Federal Government has failed to take further necessary actions.
According to the statement, the organized labour will proceed on the nationwide strike action, if the Federal Government refuses to take the necessary actions on the resolutions which they describe as a concluded issue.
The labour group and the Federal Government have been enmeshed in serious debates over a new wage structure for workers. The Nigeria Governors Forum, on the other hand, has stated that although the governors are not against a new wage structure for workers, some states lack the capacity to pay.
