Breaking: NLC Suspends Strike

The Nigrerian Labour Congress has suspended its ongoing strike it commenced on September 26.

This was announced by the  National President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba,  at a press conference on Sunday 30th September, in Abuja.

“The suspension takes effect from today Sunday,” he said.

Workers are therefore expected to resume duties on Tuesday as Monday has been declared a public holiday by the federal government to mark the October 1st Independence Day.

The workers are demanding a new minimum wage of about N50,000 instead of the current national minimum wage of N18,000.

According to the NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, he said the union was open to dialogue on the strike.

“Our demand is that the tripartite negotiating council should be called back to conclude its assignment on minimum wage.” Mr Wabba said.

Meanwhile, the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, has assured the unions that the tripartite committee will reconvene to complete its negotiation.
