Update from Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)
Recall, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) warns that there would be strike as they directed its state councils. NLC said that the strike would commence on October 16, 2019, if Federal Government breaks down again in this new negotiation over new minimum wage of N30,000.
“It was a notice in case the proposed negotiations slated for October 15, 2019 turned down again, that is to say, does not favour Nigeria Labour,” excerpt from a circular sent to state councils, signed by its General Secretary, Mr Emmanuel Ugboaja and publicized by NLC

If there is a positive dialogue or negotiation that would favour labour, believe me, there will be a change in all dimension. Even, NYSC corps members would benefit more as they would use the money to achieve something greater after one year youth service.
