The Organised Labour in Abia, comprising of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress (TUC) Tuesday handed over a notice of strike and 7 days ultimatum to the Abia State Government, ABSG over its inability to dialogue with the union’s over payment of the former N30,000 minimum wage and the N35,000 palliative wage award as approved by Federal Government since October 2023.

In the ultimatum dated 8th July 2024, reference number ORGL/ABS/VOL.

“It was noticed that the government has not deemed it necessary to dialogue with the Labour nor provide solution to the demands of the workers in our letter Ref. No. ORGL/ABS/VOL.II/001 see attached.

“In line with the National directives on non-compliance of Abia State government on the payment of the former N30,000 minimum wage and the N35,000 palliative wage award as approved by Federal Government since October 2023, the Organised Labour hereby issues this final seven (7) days ultimatum with effect from the day of the receipt of this letter, and state unequivocally, that at the expiration of this ultimatum on Sunday 0.00hrs, there shall be no further communication with the government, rather the entire workforce of Abia State will proceed on indefinite strike action beginning from Monday 15th July, 2024”.

Why can’t Alet Otti pay 30k minimum wage? He shouldn’t use this minimum wage issue to spoil his good work.

HahhahhahHha, I said people should not rejoice over what Federal Government will pay, what state Governors will pay is they main issue 2/3 of them will not pay.
You see state Governors, they are the main issue of Nigeria, those guys are lazy the only thing they know is embezzlement.

This is a height of wickedness for a state to still be paying minimum wage of 18k in this economy, especially coming from a Labour Party governor that claims to be the best that has ever happened to ABIANS. WICKEDNESS!

My biggest regret is supporting the Labour Party. When they won, we were rejoicing in Abia not knowing that we brought in a dictator as a Governor. Every worker is complaining. In Abia State University where I work, we will possibly go on strike on Friday over 3 months unpaid salaries.
The last government was owing us 11 months salary and the present governor promised to pay it before the end of last year, till now, nothing has been done.
Imagine being owed 14 months of salary.
This LP thing is a social media propaganda. I'm no longer part of it. I won't even believe Peter Obi again if I am to judge Labour based on what Alex Otti is doing.

Though am not holding brief for Otti on minimum wage demands from labour but where were labour when TA Orji and Okezie Ikeazu owed salaries, pension and gratuity for over 8 Years. I smell stomach infrastructure from labour.
