The United Labour Congress has pulled out of the planned nationwide strike scheduled to commence on Wednesdayover the non-implementation of the new minimum wage by the governments.
The ULC president, Joe Ajaero, stated that the group will not be part of an exercise designed to hoodwink Nigerian workers and masses into believing that their interests are being championed.
The federal government and Labour will be meeting today to discuss and possibly agree on the implementation of the new minimum wage of N30,000.
Its a break or make meeting as organised labour insists it will embark on an indefinite strike on Wednesday which marks the expiration of the 4-day ultimatum issued on Sunday.
Labour is demanding twenty nine per cent salary increase for officers on grade level seven to fourteen and twenty four per cent adjustment for officers on grade level fifteen to seventeen.
This is against the Federal Government’s offer of eleven per cent for officers on grade level seven to fourteen and six point five per cent for workers of grade level fifteen to seventeen.
