Organized Labour declares indefinite strike In Nasarawa over minimum wage,  promotion

The Organised Labour in Nasarawa State has declared an indefinite strike. 

Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state, Yusuf Iya said the indefinite strike took off on Tuesday

June 14. 

Speaking at the Labour House in Lafia, the state capital, Iya discloses how the state executives council reach the decision after a meeting on Tuesday.

He said they are demanding the implementation of promotions which they say have lingered for over a decade,

implementation of annual increments, training among others.

The State NLC Chairman said; 

“You would recall that after the 21-day and seven-day ultimatums we issued elapsed on Wednesday, June 9 2021

and we are supposed to commence three days warning strike, but stayed action due to the intervention of the

traditional rulers.

“In view of that, the Organised Labour held an emergency meeting today Monday, 14th June 2021 and resolved

that, since all the necessary protocols were followed in order to pursue our legitimate demands from the

government to see the need to pay the last tranche of August 2016, implement our promotions of over a decade

and conclude the national minimum wage negotiation, but which turns futile.

He also adds that Organize Labour should therefore enjoin all workers to proceed on indefinite strike action as from Tuesday 15th

June, 2021 immediately until it reaches an amicable resolution with the Government on our demands.”
