#MinimumWage: It’s 30,000 Naira Or Strike,TUC Declares
Organized Labour has threatened to go on strike again if the Federal Government fails to approve and implement the N30,000 minimum wage.
The General Secretary of the Trade Union Congress, Musa Lawal, said this while reacting to comments by the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, that the report of the tripartite committee was just a recommendation.
Lawal said Organized Labour decided to end its planned strike because the government had expressed the willingness to accept the report of the tripartite committee.
He warned of an impending strike if the report is not fully implemented.
“They can say anything they want to say. Why were they panicky before? Why did they agree to the N30, 000? They can call it a mere recommendation or whatever they want to call it but the important thing is that at the end of the day if we do not get the N30,000, they know what we will do.” Lawal said.
Minister of Information Lai Mohammed on Wednesday, November 7, explained that the proposed minimum wage was a recommendation, and had not been approved.
