Labour Suspends Minimum Wage Strike


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have “relaxed” their nationwide strike for a few days.

A top official of the NLC told Aljazirah Nigeria that the strike has been “relaxed for a few days”.

Labour had embarked on the strike after negotiations with the federal government on a new minimum wage met a brick wall.

The industrial action paralysed economic and government activities across the nation for two days.

Organised labour suspended the strike after its national executive council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Tuesday. Festus Osifo, TUC president, said a communique on the development will be issued shortly.

Labour had reached an agreement with the federal government on a minimum wage threshold on Monday.

The tripartite committee will continue negotiations during the period of the suspension of the strike, Aljazirah Nigeria understands.
