The Joint Labour Congress has stated that on Tuesday, that workers in both state public service and local government areas of the state will commence an indefinite strike action over non-payment of N30,000 minimum wage.
In a statement signed by the chairmen of the NLC, Aliyyu Issa Ore, Ezekiel Adegoke of the TUC and Saliu Suleiman of the Joint Negotiating Council (JNC-TUS), it read:
“No worker should come to work until they were directed by the leadership of the labour movement.
“We will make sure that nobody is victimized or harassed by the government in this respect.
“Consequently, the state councils of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Joint Negotiating Council hereby call on workers to please cooperate and actively participate in this struggle in order to achieve the desired success”.
