Despite reaching a truce with the federal government on Monday night, the Organized Labour has said it will continue with the nationwide strike pending the outcome of its meeting with its organs scheduled for Tuesday.

“Until we hear from our organs at our meeting slated for today 4th June, we are still on strike,” the labour union said in a post on its official X handle in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Though, Organized Labour’s position is coming after a six-hour meeting with the federal government which expressed the commitment of President Bola Tinubu to raise the N60,000 offered as the minimum wage.

“Arising from the above, the tripartite committee is to meet every day for the next one week with a view to arriving at an agreeable national minimum wage,” according to the statement jointly signed by both Labour and government representatives.

Despite the promise, NLC then said it would be meeting with its organs today, adding that no worker would be victimized due to the industrial action.

Recall that activities of most businesses, airports, schools, banks, and others, especially public institutions, were grounded on Monday, following the nationwide strike actions by the labour.
