Labour Plans Nationwide Strike Over New Minimum Wage Delay


Labour unions in the public service on Monday said they had started mobilising workers against the delay by the Federal Government to implement the new minimum wage signed into law on April 18.

The unions, under the aegis of the Trade Union Side (TUS) of the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council (JNPSNC), said in Lagos after its meeting that they would commence mobilisation of workers for a showdown to press home their demand for the implementation of the new minimum wage.

A letter signed by Mr Anchaver Simon, Chairman, and Mr Alade Lawal, Secretary accused the Federal Government of working to derail negotiation that would result in a consequential adjustment of salaries in the public service.

The TUS had earlier warned that the eight unions in the public services of the federal and 36 state governments might embark on strike if by June 28, the government failed to make any headway with the negotiation to pay the minimum wage.
