Minimum Wage: NLC Declares Immediate Strike

Must Read

In certain states that have refused to pay the N30, 000 new national minimum wage, the Nigeria Labor Congress, NLC, has announced “immediate strike action.”

NLC regretted that nearly half of the country’s states had not yet completed agreements to pay the minimum wage.

The Instruction of Congress was embodied in a communiqué issued at the conclusion of the National Executive Council (NEC) and was signed jointly by the President of the NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, and the Secretary General, Mr. Emma Ugboaja.

The NLC insisted that the government’s failure to pay the minimum wage was an act of crime and a betrayal of its oath of office.

“The NEC also resolved to view the refusal to pay the new national minimum wage by state governments as demanded by the law as an act of criminality, betrayal of the oath of office sworn by state chief executives and a dangerous adventure in anarchy.”

“The NEC-in-Session directed all states where the national minimum wage of N30,000 is yet to be paid to immediately proceed on industrial action,” it said.
