NLC calls off strike, Buhari to announce new minimum wage
The organized labour has suspended its planned strike. This is coming after marathon meetings with the Federal government.
NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, explained that the decision was reached after agreements and documents were signed.
“Having reached this position and agreements signed, the proposed strike action is hereby suspended,” he said.
According to a report by Punch, the federal government eventually agreed to labour’s demand of N30,000 after union leaders made it clear that anything below that would lead to national shutdown.
Chairman of the Tripartite Committee, Ama Pepple, expressed her excitement that their assignment had been concluded.
“I am happy to report to you that we have concluded our assignment and we will submit our report to the President by 4.15pm on Tuesday.
“We will reveal the figure at the presentation,” she assured.
