The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said the total and indefinite industrial strike action commenced by workers across the country on Monday is still ongoing.

This is despite the agreement signed with The Federal Government on the fixing of a new minimum wage that is above N60,000.

The agreement was reached at the end of a meeting held on Monday between leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC), and representatives of the federal government.

Giving update on the strike suspension, Labour said until they hear from their organs, the strike is still on.

“Until we hear from our organs at our meeting scheduled for today 4th June, we are still on strike,” the NLC stated shortly after the meeting convened by the federal government at the Akume’s residence.

Part of the resolution, it was gathered, is that the tripartite committee is to meet everyday for the next one week with a view to arriving at an agreeable national minimum wage with labour undertaking to convene a meeting of its organs immediately to consider this commitment.

Also, no worker would be victimized as a result of the industrial action.
