[BREAKING] Minimum wage: NLC, TUC declare indefinite nationwide strike from Monday

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have declared an indefinite nationwide strike beginning from Monday, June 3, 2024.

The move is sequel to the failure of the federal government to accept the new minimum wage proposed by labour leaders in the country.

President of the TUC Festus Osifo announced the strike at a joint news conference with the leadership of the NLC in Abuja on Friday.

According to the labour leaders, the decision follows the expiration of an earlier request to the federal government to conclude all negotiations for a new minimum wage before the end of May.

The organised labour had once pulled out of the negotiation and rejected two Federal Government offers, the latest being N60,000.

Leaders of NLC and TUC pleaded with Nigerians to bear with them, saying “Apologies for inconveniences but commitment to pursue the cause to its conclusion.”
