Labour Suspends Warning Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress has suspended its ongoing nationwide strike following promises by the Federal Government to reconvene the tripartite committee on national minimum wage on October 4.

The suspension of the warning strike takes effect from today.

Announcing the decision in Abuja on Sunday, the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, stated that the labour action was suspended to enable the tripartite committee to hold its crucial meeting and conclude its work.


  1. NLC should first take things up with the Government to provide necessary infrastructure (electricity, good roads) to make employers more productive and increase their earnings to pay their workers.
    If present employers are still struggling to pay the last increase (18K) in minimum wage, how are they suppose to pay the increase.
    The NLC fight would only favor federal and some state workers. The private employers will lay workers off.
    NLC is going to create a lot of unemployment and then blame the Government for why the nation is going under.

  2. A lot of people were expecting the strike to go on
