Kebbi - The Kebbi chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has threatened to call out workers on an indefinite strike within one week unless the minimum wage dispute with government is resolved.
The NLC Chairman, Sadiq Kaoje, told newsmen in Birnin Kebbi on Tuesday that the strike would start on July 11 if the matter was not resolved.
``The NLC has made intensive deliberations to resolve the minimum wage matter to no avail,'' Kaoje said.
He said workers in the state were surprised that the agreed wage table by all stakeholders had not been implemented.
He said the organised labour met on Tuesday,” and after the intensive deliberations, we resolved to resume our suspended strike action until Wednesday 11th July,2012.
“If by midnight of July 11, 2012, the governor does not implement the minimum wage, then we have no option but to resume our indefinite strike.
``The NLC has resolved to embark on strike as you are all aware that N18,000 minimum wage has become a law in this country and we see no reason why Kebbi State should be left behind.''
Kaoje called on workers and the public to continue with their normal duties.
