NLC begins indefinite strike over minimum wage, January 8

The last has not been heard of the industrial action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) as the congress as fixed January 8 for an indefinite strike.

The latest action follows the inability of the Federal Government to urgently transmit the bill on the new national minimum wage to the National Assembly.

NLC President Comrade Ayuba Wabba who spoke on the coming showdown, said the strike would be inevitable if nothing happened before the set date. He appealed to workers across the nation to support the action to succeed in the interest of their social and economic prosperity.

He stressed that the NLC leadership is similarly committed to social protection for workers.

 Wabba called on Federal Government to urgently transmit the bill on the new national minimum wage to the National Assembly for a speedy passage.

His words: “It is unfortunate that the Federal Government is yet to transmit to the National Assembly an executive bill for the enactment of N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.  Government’s dilly-dallying on the issue has strained Government-Labour relations with a potential for a major national strike which could just be days away.

“I want to appeal to the government to do the needful by urgently transmitting the bill on the new national minimum wage to the National Assembly. We also would like to use this same opportunity to urge workers to fully mobilise for a prolonged national strike and enforce their right.

 “The new year presents great opportunities for workers, pensioners, civil society allies and their friends and families to put their numbers to good use. This is by voting out, not on the basis of tribe or religion but purely policy, any candidate that cannot serve their interest.

“In the year that is ahead of us, the NLC remains unequivocally committed to the national and workers’ goals which include the campaign for industrialisation, against selective enforcement of “No Work, No Pay” policy of government, among others,” he said.
