NLC Declares A Nationwide Protest On Tuesday

The Nigeria Labour Congress has announced that it will hold a nationwide protest on Tuesday January 8,2019to drive its demand for the upward review of the national minimum wage from N18,000 to N30,000.

The General Secretary of the NLC, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, in his statement stated that there would be no strike for now.
He therefore asked members of the public to disregard reports that the strike would begin tomorrow.

The statement read in part,
“It has come to our attention that some sections of the news media have largely misrepresented our action plan in reaction to the delay in transmitting the recommendations of the Tripartite Committee on a new national minimum wage to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“It should be recalled that the National Executive Council of the NLC met on December 17 last year and directed that we hold nationwide mobilisation of workers and our allies if, by December 31, 2018, the bill on the national minimum wage has yet to be sent to the National Assembly to be passed as an Act of Parliament.
“We immediately announced then that on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, there will be a nationwide mass mobilisation and protests simultaneously across all states in Nigeria.
This does not translate to a strike.”

    1. Nope nothing like that. I work with one of the Labour unions. You don’t just go on strike like that. It requires a lot of mobilizations and strategizing .probably they have not been able to strategize properly.
