NLC declares strike continues pending review meeting

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has disclosed that the ongoing nationwide strike will continue despite the agreement signed with the Federal Government at Monday’s meeting.

Activities of most businesses, airports, schools, banks and others, especially public institutions, were grounded on Monday, following the nationwide strike actions by the labour.

However, the congress, in a post on X, on Tuesday, June 4, said the industrial action which has grounded the nation’s economy will continue until Tuesday’s meeting of organs of the union where all resolutions of Monday’s meeting are expected to be reviewed.

“Until we hear from our organs at our meeting scheduled for today, June 4, we are still on strike,” the post reads.

NLC’s comment came hours after the Federal Government convened a meeting with labour unions, including the Trade Union Congress (TUC) held at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), to end the strike action.

However, after exhaustive deliberation and engagement, NLC said FG agreed to a minimum wage higher than N60,000.

“Arising from the above, the tripartite committee is to meet every day for the next one week with a view to arriving at an agreeable national minimum wage,” according to the statement by NLC.

The NLC then said it would be meeting with its organs today, adding that no worker would be victimised due to the industrial action.

The statement was jointly signed by the President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, and the President of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Festus Osifo.
