Minimum Wage: NLC, TUC Suspend Strike For Five Days



Members of the organised labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress, on Tuesday, suspended their strike for five days, a leader of the NLC told our correspondent in Abuja.

The centres are expected to issue a statement shortly before the commencement of negotiations with the government.

The strike which commenced on Monday was called to protest the failure of the Federal Government to approve new minimum wage by May 31 as well as its failure to reverse the hike in electricity tariff.

The PUNCH reports that after a six-hour meeting with the leadership of organised labour in Abuja on Monday night, the Federal Government expressed the commitment of President Bola Tinubu to raising the N60,000 offered as the minimum wage.
