Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), on Tuesday, insisted they would continue with the strike today, while negotiations on their demands could continue.

In a post on its X handle, the congress said the industrial action that has grounded the country’s economy will continue until Tuesday’s meeting of organs of the union where all resolutions of Monday’s meeting are expected to be reviewed.

The post read, “Until we hear from our organs at our meeting scheduled for today, June 4, we are still on strike.

The Federal Government of Nigeria had earlier agreed to increase the minimum wage beyond the initially proposed N60,000.

This decision, FidelInfo reported, was reached during a meeting between government officials and labour leaders on Monday night in Abuja, aimed at resolving the dispute over the national minimum wage and ending the indefinite strike.
