Kano NLC Suspends Proposed Strike, Accepts N18,000 Minimum Wage
Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended its proposed industrial action after accepting the Kano State Government’s decision to revert salaries of workers for the month of March to the old N18,000 minimum wage.
The Kano State council of NLC had issued a seven-day ultimatum for the government to revert the March salary to N30,000 minimum wage, after which three days warning strike would be declared.
But the Kano State Government declared that it will not be able to pay the N30,000 minimum wage for the month of March, citing dwindling monthly FAAC allocation.
NLC national president Comrade Ayuba Waba, who disclosed the withdrawal of the strike while addressing journalists early morning Thursday, declared the new development was reached after an emergency meeting held with four delegations of the state government led by head of service, Binta Lawan Ahmed.
