Minimum Wage: Ogun workers threaten to strike



The Ogun state chapter of the organised labour group (NLC), on Monday, threatened to begin a two-day warning strike if its demand for a negotiation committee on the minimum wage was not met by the state government.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Joint Negotiating Council (JNC) issued the threat on Monday in a statement.

The statement was signed by Emmanuel Bankole (NLC), Olubunmi Fajobi (TUC) and Olanrewaju Folorunso, all leaders of the unions, at an emergency congress in Abeokuta.

The labour unions alleged that the state government had deliberately refused to set up a negotiation committee that would determine the consequential adjustments of the newly signed wage law.
