Labour Unions affirm decision on total strike

The leadership of The organized labour says the warning strike to commence tonight will be total & comprehensive.

To this end, Nigerian workers and masses are advised to prepare adequately as there is no time frame for the industrial action until the minimum wage review committee is reconvening to complete its assignment.

The leadership of the organized labour gave the advice at a joint news conference in Abuja by the leadership of NLC, TUC and a factional labour Union tagged ULC.

The NLC president, Comrade Ayuba Wabba who addressed journalists on behalf of the leadership of organized labour said the govt has continued to take workers for granted despite their patience as there was no effort to reconvene the tripartite committee meeting within the 14-day ultimatum which expired 12th midnight.

Comrade Wabba explained that all critical services would be withdrawn from midnight until the government show sincere commitment to the issue of the new minimum wage for workers.

The Vice President of the factional labour Union called ULC, Comrade Igwe Achese stressed the all labour unions in the country are united on the demand & struggle for urgent action to fix a new minimum wage for workers.

He maintained that all labour unions & their chapters have been directed to mobilise to effect the strike as from midnight.

Meanwhile, at an ongoing meeting with the leadership of the organized labour, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige told the delegation of the organized labour that he was not properly informed on the recent position taken by the organized labour on the issue of minimum wage.

Dr Ngige emphasized that the Federal Govt was committed to resolving the issue & sued for the understanding of the labour leaders.

The meeting between the FG and the leadership of the organized leadership has ended abruptly without any reasonable position taken to avert the warning strike
