Photos Of NLC And TUC Members As They Embark On Nationwide Protest.
Following proposals to reform the national minimum wage act, members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) staged a nationwide strike.
The demonstration erupted after the House of Representatives passed a bill to transfer the national minimum wage from the exclusive list to the concurrent list on second reading. Honourable Garba Mohammed of Kaduna State’s Sabon Gari Federal Constituency is the bill’s primary sponsor.
Staff holding placards that read “On National Minimum Wage We Stand,” “No To Minimum Wage on Concurrent List,” and “Yes To Minimum Wage on Exclusive List” protested in various states across the country.
