Labour may resume nationwide indefinite strike over FG new minimum wage offer

The disagreement between the Federal Government and Organised Labour over a new minimum wage is likely to force the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress to resume its suspended nationwide indefinite strike action.

Dockaysworld reported that the Tripartite Committee on Friday increased the new minimum wage offer from N60K to N62k.

But the Organised Labour has made up its mind, insisting on N250,000 figure.

At the end of the meeting last night, the leadership of the tripartite committee said it would forward both positions to President Bola Tinubu who is expected to study them and send a bill to the National Assembly for the final consideration of the new national minimum wage Act.

Recall that the N60K proposal had led the Organised Labour to withdraw from the negotiation table and declared an indefinite strike action to press home its demands.

Labour chief, Joe Ajaero had on Tuesday declared readiness to resume the strike if their demands are not met.

At the end of the first day of the devastating strike action on Monday, the SGF, Senator George Akume, spearheaded a meeting with the Labour unions after which a four-point resolution was reached, including a commitment by President Bola Tinubu to pay a new minimum wage higher than the N60,000 offer.

Tinubu directed Edun to present the cost implications for a new minimum wage within two days.

Though Edun has submitted the proposal to the president, it has not been made public.
