The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has declared a total strike following the outcome of the meeting with a federal government delegation led by Chris Ngige, minister of labour and productivity.
This was announced by Ayuba Wabba, president NLC at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.
According to Wabba, both parties could not reach an agreement at the meeting.
The NLC president called on NLC members across the country to ensure full compliance with the industrial action, starting by midnight on Wednesday.
Those who attended the meeting on the labour side include, the leadership of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and other stakeholders of the organised labour.
Labour had earlier declared a temporary strike over the alleged delay of the federal government to implement the new minimum wage for workers.
