BREAKING: Labour Declares Indefinite Strike From Monday June 3rd

by catharinedobos

Organised Labour, which includes the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), has declared an indefinite nationwide strike from Monday, June 3rd over the failure of the federal government to conclude negotiations on a new national minimum wage and reverse the hike in the electricity tariff.

The strike was declared at a joint press conference by NLC President Joe Ajaero and TUC President Festus Osifo.

The President of NLC said the strike begins by midnight of Sunday, June 2, 2024.

According to the organized labour, the strike has become necessary as the Federal Government appears recalcitrant in its refusal to increase the N60,000 it offered at the resumption of the tripartite committee meeting in Abuja on Friday.

At the briefing, leaders of NLC and TUC pleaded with Nigerians to bear with them, saying “Apologies for inconveniences but commitment to pursue the cause to its conclusion.”

Osifo stated,

“As you are aware, we had the last meeting preceding today, which was on Tuesday. In that meeting, they (the government) offered N60,000. They invited us for a meeting today (Friday), and we deliberated on it, thinking they were showing the necessary commitment.

“To our surprise, there was no serious representation from either the Federal Government or the state governors who are supposed to be part of the negotiations.

“So, technically, we felt they have abandoned us because they remained adamant about the N60,000 offer. Not even a kobo was added to what we rightfully rejected.”
