The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have announced that President Bola Tinubu has committed to a higher national minimum wage above N60,000. However, the government has not plans to reverse the electricity tariff hike and discriminatory band classification.

The NLC and TUC suspended their indefinite nationwide strike action for one week to allow the government to commit to a concrete and acceptable national minimum wage, reverse the electricity tariff hike, and abolish the discriminatory classification of electricity consumers into bands.

The labour unions expressed disappointment at the government’s silence and lack of action on the electricity tariff hike and classification, which they deem unacceptable.

The NLC and TUC presidents, Joe Ajaero and Festus Osifo, signed the communique, which reaffirmed the unions’ commitment to pursuing all necessary actions to protect the rights and welfare of Nigerian workers and people.
