Minimum Wage Demands Unsettled Despite Threats
Irrespective of the strike threats from the Nigerian Labour Congress, their minimum wage demands remain unresolved.
This report, made by Daily Trust re-enforced the congress’ resolution and the fact that it was inline with due consultation from state governors.
Vanguard had previously reported that leaders of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC and United Labour Congress of Nigeria, have begun massive mobilisation of members nationwide and their civil society allies, ahead of a protest scheduled for today, but also for the nationwide strike on November 6.
The congress reports that it might have no other option than a strike as the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige is not doing anything to settle the issue.
Nigerians await the decisions of the government as any resolution will affect the business sector as well as other sectors as the year comes to an end.
