Ahead of November 6 nationwide strike to compel government to peg a new minimum wage at N30,000, organized labour will tomorrow hold mass protest across the country as part of sensitization of workers and Nigerians for the planned industrial action.

This came as organized labour urged workers not to be deterred by the government’s threat of “no work, no pay” as strike had always complied with legal requirements.

Already, leaders of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC and United Labour Congress of Nigeria, TUC, have begun massive mobilisation of members nationwide and their civil society allies, ahead of not only tomorrow’s protest, but also for the nationwide strike on November 6.

On its part, NLC, while urging workers to prepare for indefinite strike from November 6 over a new minimum wage, told them not to be deterred by government’s threat of “no work, no pay” as strike has always complied with legal requirements and will always comply with those requirements.

In a release by President of NLC and the General Secretary, Ayuba Wabba, and Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, the NLC urged members nationwide to fully mobilize and comply with resolutions of National Executive Council, NEC, meeting of Tuesday 23.
