Organised Labour Insists on May 31, 2024 Ultimatum to Federal Government to Meet All Demands

The Organised Labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) has reiterated its May 31, 2024 ultimatum to the Federal Government to meet all of its demands which includes implementation of a new national minimum wage and reversal of the hike in electricity tariff.

This followed a Monday emergency meeting of the National Executive Councils (NEC) of the NLC and TUC in response to the pressing national issues affecting Nigerian workers.

Among the issues discussed by the labour leaders was the persisting non-compliance with the 2019 National Minimum wage Act by some state governments.

In the resolution jointly signed by NLC President Joe Ajaero and TUC leader Festus Osifo, the labour unions also directed their members in Anambra State to mobilise for an industrial action in the event that the state government did not meet the demands of workers by May 23, 2024.
