The National Labour Congress (NLC) has asked for a new date for the earlier scheduled Tuesday 15 meeting between the House of Representatives and organised labour union on the new minimum wage.
This is as the meeting fixed for Tuesday between the green chamber and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) was not held due to the absence of representatives of the latter, The Nation reports.
The agenda of the said meeting was to come up with alternatives that will prevent the proposed nationwide strike which the NLC has asked workers to prepare for.
Recall that Legit.ng reported that the NLC had asked workers all over the country to prepare for nationwide industrial action.
The call for the preparation was made to state councils of the congress on Sunday, October 13, following the federal government to meet the demands of organised labour union.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the leadership of the NLC and the TUC had insisted that they would embark on the planned strike, if the federal government failed to implement the new minimum wage.
