The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has debunked the news going round tht organized labour has issued strike threat notice tp the Federal Government over the implementation of the new minimum national monthly wage.
Ayuba Wabba, President of NLC said that the congress has not issued any strike notice as discussion over the implementation of the minimum wage and the consequential adjustment was going on smoothly.
This was as Wabba commended President Muhamadu Buhari for signing the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) after extensive consultations.
“Our own case is going on well. We met with our unions yesterday (Monday). The difference right now is about the consequential increase and we hope that through a normal process of dialogue, we will be able to sought that out.
“As an organised body, I am not sure we have given any notice to that effect (strike). If we reach a point of issuing threats, we will do that without hesitation.
“But I have seen many information on the social media. We are a credible organisation and we should be able to speak for ourselves.
“If we get to that point, we will be able to inform you. But for now, the process is going on and we have been able to expand the scope of dialogue to include NLC/TUC and only limited to the unions in the public sector,” he said.
