The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have called a statewide strike commencing on Monday, June 3rd, 2024, due to the tripartite committee’s inability to agree on a new minimum wage and an increase in power tariffs.

Festus Osifo, President of the TUC, declared the strike during a joint news conference with NLC leadership in Abuja on Friday.

According to labor leaders, the decision followed the expiration of a previous request to the Federal Government to complete all discussions for a new minimum wage by the end of May.

“In light of this persistent inaction, we, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), hereby issue a notice of commencement of an indefinite nationwide strike to the Federal Government,” Osifo stated.

“We reiterate that since the National Minimum Wage negotiation exercise has not been concluded and the agreed wage passed into law; the hike in electricity tariff has not been reversed and the categorization of consumers into Bands has not stopped as demanded; Nigerian workers are compelled by these failures to embark on an indefinite nationwide industrial action beginning on Monday, the 3rd of June, 2024 to press home our demands.”
