Despite the National Industrial Court (NIC) ruling in Abuja, yesterday, barring it from doing so until the determination of the substantive matter before it, the organised Labour has insisted on embarking on strike action over the non-implementation of N30, 000 as the new National Minimum Wage.
The National Industrial Court (NIC), yesterday, barred the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) from embarking on any industrial action until the substantive suit is determined. Hearing of the case, which was instituted by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) has been fixed for Thursday, November 8 in Abuja.
The organised labour had threatened to embark on an industrial action slated to commence on Tuesday, November 6, if the Federal Government fails to put in place necessary motion towards sending a Bill to the National Assembly to legislate for a new minimum wage for the country.
But President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN): "We are not aware of any court ruling and we have not been served any notice."We have just concluded our joint organ meetings of the Central Working Committees of the Labour Centres of the NLC, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the United Labour Congress (ULC) in Lagos.
"The meeting is the final preparation for a full engagement with the government on the new national minimum wage and we have taken our decision to go on the strike."Our decision is to go ahead with the nationwide strike, unless the government does the needful."
Also, TUC General Secretary, Musa Lawal, said the centre was not aware of any court ruling concerning the planned strike by organised labour, insisting: "We are not aware, because we have not been served any court order. We have taken our decision and we are going to stand by that."
Similarly, TUC Chairman in Kwara State, Kola Olumoh, said yesterday's NIC ruling, cannot stop the proposed nationwide strike.He told NAN in llorin that the order was a ploy to cause confusion, which was already belated, adding that the national body of the organised Labour unions would appeal the ruling, while the proposed nationwide strike would continue.
Olumoh said Labour was magnanimous enough to stand at N30, 000 minimum wage for workers, which he noted could not be compared with the jumbo pay of political office holders."We are fully prepared for the proposed strike in Kwara, if the Federal Government fails to accept the N30, 000 as minimum wage," Olumoh said, just as he advised workers in the state to fully prepare for the strike and cooperate with the labour unions in the struggle.
