Workers in states that are yet to implement the national minimum wage of N30,000 are set for an industrial action.
This is following a directive from the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, yesterday, February 18, asking workers in the affected states to immediately proceed on strike.
Although in the communique, the NLC did not name the states yet to honour the minimum wage.
However, the NLC said about half the 36 states of the federation were yet to conclude negotiations on payment of the minimum wage.
NLC warned that it would take drastic action against state governments that have refused to pay the new national minimum wage and minimum pension, whose benefits have been eroded by the escalating inflation in the country.
In the communiqué jointly signed by NLC President, Dr. Ayuba Wabba and General Secretary, Mr. Emma Ugboaja, NLC said:
“The NEC also resolved to view the refusal to pay the new national minimum wage by state governments as demanded by the law as an act of criminality, betrayal of the oath of office sworn by state chief executives and a dangerous adventure in anarchy.
“The NEC-in-Session directed all states where the national minimum wage of N30,000 is yet to be paid to immediately proceed on industrial action.”
