Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have announced that they are planning to embark on a nationwide strike.

Both unions said their planned industrial action was in opposition to the move by the National Assembly to remove the issue of national minimum wage from the exclusive legislative list, The Tribune reported

The organised labour described the move as a ploy to allow some state governors to pay slave wages to the poor and hapless workers.

The NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, said the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union has approved protests in the 36 states’ Houses of Assembly over the issue.

”The NEC decided that there will be a national protest action commencing from March 10, 2021, in the Federal Capital Territory and especially to the National Assembly. The protest is to make a strong statement that Nigerian workers would not lie low and watch hard-fought rights which are of global standards bastardized by opportunistic and narrow thinking politicians.
“The NEC resolved that the national protest action will be concurrently held in all the 36 states of the federation and to the different State Houses of Assembly across Nigeria.”
