NLC and TUC Agree to Suspend Strike Over Minimum Wage Dispute for One Week

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have jointly agreed to suspend the ongoing strike over a new national minimum wage dispute with the Federal Government for a period of one week.

A source from the ongoing National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja confirmed this development.

“The joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect,” the source stated.

The strike, which began on Monday, entered its second day on Tuesday, leading to the grounding of economic activities across the country.
