Minimum Wage Delay | Senate Dialogue With Labour Over Upcoming Nationwide Strike

Share This

The Nigerian Senate is persuading the Nigeria Labour Congress to halt its upcoming nationwide strike prompted by delay in the implementation of agreed  N30,000 minimum wage for its members.

The Senate, instead, counseled the union to exercise patience while promising to proffer supports in every ways necessary.

“We should not encourage personal issue to overshadow our collective responsibility to nation building," Ahmed Lawan said, adding 

“We will journey with you to ensure absolute implementation of the minimum wage by the Federal government.”

The President of the Senate Thursday engaged with executives of the NLC and the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, (PASAN) led by Ayuba Waba and Sunday Sabiyi, in Abuja.

He went on to invite PASAN to collaborate with the management and leadership of the National Assembly, urging it to present issue-based arguments, instead on engaging strike action to press home its demands.

The NLC President pledged the commitment and collaboration of the labour unions to the legislators.

On his part, the PASAN Chairman used the occasion to present the demands of the parliamentary staff in National Assembly.

Sabiyi listed the demands to include implementation of 2018 arrears of 28 per cent and balance of 50 per cent consolidated legislative salary, implementation of condition of service recently approved by the eight National Assembly, training of staff, health insurance and life insurance premium.
