NLC minimum wage

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has warned that it might embark on another strike come Wednesday, October 16.

Eye9ja reports that NLC warned its state councils that it might embark on a strike action if negotiation falls on deadlock with Federal Government.

The NLC said it would be meeting with the Federal Government on October 15 to discuss matters not unconnected to the payment of new minimum wage.

This intention to embark on the strike was made known in a circular sent to the state councils, signed by its General Secretary, Mr Emmanuel Ugboaja.

In the statement, the NLC said this was a notice in case the proposed negotiations slated for Oct. 15 with the Federal Government brokes down.

The circular reads as thus; “You will recall that a Joint Communiqué was issued by the NLC, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Committee (JNPSNC) stating that two weeks from the date of the said communiqué, industrial harmony could not be guaranteed in the country should an agreement not be reached with the Federal Government on the Consequential Adjustment of Salaries as a result of the New National Minimum Wage of N30,000.

“You are hereby directed to coordinate preparations with TUC and JNPSNC in your States for necessary industrial action should the time expire without an agreement as contained in the circular.’
