According to reports, Organised labour have threatened to go on an indefinite strike action if the Federal Government fails to approve the N30,000 minimum wage recommended by the tripartite committee set up by the President.
The secretary general of the Trade Union Congress, Musa Lawal, was reacting to comments made by the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed saying that the report of the tripartite committee was a mere recommendation said that organised labour was been pushed to the wall by the Federal Government.
Lawal added that the union had agreed to hold off its initial planned action because the Government expressed willingness to accept the report of the tripartite committee.
“They can say anything they want to say. Why were they panicky before? Why did they agree to the N30,000? They can call it a mere recommendation or whatever they want to call it but the important thing is that at the end of the day, if we do not get the N30,000, they know what we will do,” Lawal said.
