Minimum Wage: NLC Begins Indefinite Strike


The Nigeria Labor Congress (NLC) in agreement with Trade Union Congress (TUC) has initiated an indefinite strike to demand for the  implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage permitted by law in Taraba State.
This is contained in a press release marked by the TUC President, Sule Abasu and NLC President, Peter Jediel of the state.
The labor forces stated that the decision was made due to the delay and negligence on the part of the government on the already agreed minimum wage and it’s consequential adjustments.

“When silence on our negotiated new national minimum wage of N30,000 and its consequential adjustment becomes an instrument in the hands of government to deny workers their constitutional right, resistance through strike becomes legal instruments in the hands of workers,” the statement read.

They encouraged government workers in all sectors of the state to participate actively in the strike.
This is coming five weeks after the Labor associations gave a seven-day ultimatum to Taraba State Government to fulfill it’s promises on the 25th of August 2020.
