JUST IN: Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) suspends strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended its ongoing nationwide strike following promises by the Federal Government to reconvene the tripartite committee on national minimum wage on October 4. The workers are demanding a new minimum wage of about N50,000 instead of the current national minimum wage of N18,000.

The suspension of the warning strike takes effect from today, Sunday, September 30, 2018. Announcing the decision in Abuja on Sunday, the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, stated that the labour action was suspended to enable the tripartite committee to hold its crucial meeting and conclude its work.


With this, workers are expected to resume duties on Tuesday as Monday has been declared a public holiday by the federal government to mark the country's Independence Day.
