Nigerian Labour Congress Calls Off Strike

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has called off its nationwide strike.

Members are to resume work on Thursday after a series of meetings and negotiations about the implementation of Minimum Wage.

The strike action started after the NLC could not reach any agreement with the Nigerian Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige on Wednesday.


The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) President Ayuba Wabba therefore, asked workers to embark on a warning strike that led to the shutting down of offices, schools, railway stations and airports.

On why the called off the strike, Ayuba Wada said;

We have received a firm and formal invitation to a reconvened meeting of the tripartite committee scheduled for 4th and 5th of October, 2018,” the unions said at press Sunday afternoon.

“Organized Labour has, after obtaining the mandate of their necessary organs, decided to suspend the strike action with effect from today Sunday, September 30, 2018,” Mr Wabba said

“We urge all our unions and state councils to maintain a high level of mobilization and readiness until the struggle for a reasonable minimum wage is achieved,” he stated.
