Nationwide strike looms as organised labour makes announcement over N30,000 minimum wage.

The organised labour on Monday, July 1, alerted Nigerians of serious plans to embark on strike action if the current state of affairs with the N30,000 minimum wage is not resolved.
The organised labour wants the federal government to ensure that the issue of consequential adjustment arising from the new national minimum wage of N30,000 per month remains the same.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the organised labour are operating under the aegis of the Trade Union Side (TUS) of the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council (JNPSNC), eight unions in the public services of the federal and 36 state governments.

In a press statement in Abuja, the acting chairman of the TUS, Anchaver Simon, and the secretary, Alade Lawal, expressed disappointment over government’s alleged effort to derail the implementation of a new national minimum wage.
As things are right now, the government side is only prepared to pay peanuts to workers as adjustment under the pretext that it will soon be undertaking general salary review in the public service.
