NLC, TUC Suspend Strike for 1 Week

4th June 2024

The Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have agreed to suspend the on-going strike over disagreement on a new national minimum wage with the Federal Government for one week.

A source attending the on-going NEC meeting in Abuja confirmed this to our correspondent.

“A joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect,” the source said.

The strike, which commenced on Monday, entered the second day on Tuesday.

Economic activities were grounded as a result of the industrial action.

The Federal Government on Monday expressed commitment to raise the N60, 000 offered as minimum wage after a meeting with the leadership of organised labour.

The labour is expected to resume talks with the tripartite committee on a new national minimum wage today.
