Organised Labour clears air on strike action over new Minimum Wage

The Organised Labour has said there will be no strike tomorrow, Tuesday, over the minimum wage negotiation with the Federal Government.

Recall that Labour suspended its strike action for one week, while meetings with the government held to determine the new minimum wage. The suspension ends today.

However, on Monday, speaking at the ongoing International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, President, Joe Ajaero, said there will be no strike tomorrow, Tuesday.

Speaking on the sideline of the conference, Ajaero said Labour was no going on strike as they were waiting for the decision of President Bola Tinubu.

He said after the President’s decision, Labour’s National Executive Council, NEC, will deliberate on the new figure.


Ajaero, the NLC President said: “The tripartite committee submitted two figures to the President. Government and employers proposed N62,000, while labour proposed N250,000.

“We are waiting for the decision of the President. Our National Executive Council, NEC, will deliberate on the new figure when it is out.

“We cannot declare strike now because the figures are with the President. We will wait for the President’s decision.
