Minimum Wage: Labour To Begin Nationwide Strike On Monday

Minimum Wage: Labour To Begin Nationwide Strike On Monday

The members of the organised labour, on Friday, have declared a nationwide indefinite strike over the Federal Government’s refusal to raise the proposed minimum wage from N60,000.

The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Joe Ajaero, disclosed this at an ongoing press conference in Labour House, Abuja. Ajaero said the strike would begin by midnight on Sunday, une 2, 2024.

Earlier on Friday, talks on minimum wage between the Federal Government and organised labour hit a brick wall when the government failed to shift grounds on the N60,000 it proposed during the last meeting.

It can be recalled that the NLC and TUC had given a May 31, 2024 ultimatum on the new minimum wage. On Tuesday, talks between the Federal Government and organised labour broke down after the government and organised private sector raised their offers to N60,000.

The government added N3,000 to its initial offer of N57,000 proposed last week, taking the total figure to N60,000. It was dismissed by labour at the meeting. At the meeting, labour again lowered its demand by removing N3,000 from the N497,000 it proposed last week, pegging the new proposal a M494,000
