Members of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have embarked on a nationwide protest following FG plans to amend the national minimum wage act.
The protest began after a bill to remove the national minimum wage from exclusive list to Concurrent list passed a second reading at the floor of the House of Representatives. The bill is being sponsored by Honourable Garba Mohammed of Sabon Gari Federal Constituency, Kaduna State.
The Union workers who are currently marching in different states in the country, held up placards that read “On National Minimum Wage We Stand” , No To Minimum Wage on Concurrent List, “Yes To Minimum Wage on Exclusive List”.
