Nigeria Labour Union Shuns Meeting With Govt Vows to Commence Strike

Nigeria Labour Union has refused to hold meeting with the government to continue negotiations over the minimum wage of the country workers.

Despite Labour refusal to attend the meeting, the government held a meeting with the organised private sector at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, on Sunday in Abuja.

Also in the meeting were Mr. Chris Ngige, the country Minister of Labour and Employment and Mrs Zainab Ahmed the Minister of Finance.

At the end of the meeting, Ngige said the negotiation will continue on Monday.

The country is facing impasse with its workers that have vowed to be paid N30, 000 National Minimum wage and are not ready to shift ground.

Mr.Ayuba Wabba, the Labour union president had last week said there is no need for negotiation with government anymore and asked the government to implement the minimum wage proposed by labour.

Governors at the state level had last week in an emergency meeting agreed to pay N22,500 a proposal labour has rejected.

However, the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN), however, ordered the organised labour not to proceed on its planned nationwide indefinite industrial action.

Justice Sanusi Kado gave the order on Friday while delivering a ruling on an ex-parte application restraining the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) from embarking on the strike.
