BREAKING: NLC, TUC Suspends Planned Strike for 30 Days


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has suspended its planned industrial action for the next 30 days.


The strike action which was to commence on October 3rd has now been put on hold, following further deliberations with the federal government. This comes after the series of meetings the unions held with the federal government in Abuja, today.

After about five hours of horse trading before this agreement was reached.

The organised labour had threatened to pull out of the meeting following the government insistence that the N35, 000 Provisional salary increment would only last for six months.

The labour had accused the government team of reneging on what was agreed on Sunday night to the effect that the N35, 000 Provisional salary increment which is across board, would be paid till when new minimum wage would be negotiated and implemented from next year.

But reading the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, at the end of the meeting which ended about 11pm, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, said the Organised labour has suspended the planned indefinite strike for 30 days.

The MoU also mandated the Minister of Labour to look into the withheld salaries of university staff.
