President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Mr. Ayuba Wabba has threatened to embark on a mass industrial action if the
National Assembly pass the proposed bill which seeks to transfer minimum wage to the concurrent list.
The NLC President Wabba made the remark during the 2021 Workers’ Day in Abuja.
According to him,there have been attempts by a section the ruling class to remove the national minimum wage from Exclusive Legislative list to the concurrent list, adding that is us condemnable and labour unions will not allow such to happen, saying the national minimum wage is a global standard.
“We are reinforcing our earlier position to state that Nigerian workers will not allow a situation where the progress we have made for the past 40 years to be taken by these group of politicians we are going to insist that any day that this law is considered by any of the chambers, Nigerian workers are going to withdraw their services.”
