Labour extracts commitment from Govt. to pay N30,000


Nigeria’s organized labour have extracted a firm commitment from the government to pay the N30, 000 it demanded as new national minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

This development accounted for the suspension of Labour’s planned
industrial action earlier slated for Tuesday.

“Agreements have been reached and documents have been signed. Organized labour will want to use this medium to thank all the tripartite partners for their understanding.

‘Organized labour also decided that the proposed strike action is hereby suspended and we hope that this will be communicated appropriately without any dilution”, NLC chairman, Ayuba Wabba said at the end of the tripartite meeting on Monday night.
