The Nigerian Labour Congress has threatened to embark on an industrial action if by the end of 2016 the minimum wage is not reviewed.
Correspondent Sharon Ijasan reports that the call was made at the 10th quadrennial delegate conference of the National Union of Food Beverage and Tobacco Employees held in Lagos.
General secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress while addressing NLC members announced that workers have been lamenting the non review of the minimum wage as well as state governments that are owing workers.
During the delegates conference, president of the National Union of Food Beverage and Tobacco Employees Comrade Lateef Oyelekan disclosed that economic recession is affecting the manufacturing sector and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ban imported goods into the country.
The theme of the 10th delegates conference is prioritizing self sustenance strategy as a potent alternate antidote against recession.
