Minimum Wage: TUC To Commence Strike On Thursday

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has insisted organised labour would begin strike from early hours of Thursday, September 27.

This is following the Federal Government’s failure to honour its ultimatum on the new minimum wage.

In a statement signed by the Secretary-General of the union, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, explained that the decision to embark on strike was sequel to the resolve of the Central Working Committee of TUC on September 24.

“Strike is hereby declared to commence from early hours of Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018,” Ozigi said.

He also called on state councils to form a joint state strike implementation committee that would comprise the TUC, NLC and other stakeholders in the state to ensure effectiveness.

The TUC scribe urged union members to be alert for further directive on or before Thursday.
