Barring last minute change of heart, organized labour in the country has concluded arrangements to commence a nationwide strike on November 6, if the Federal Government fails to meet its demands on the new national minimum wage of N30,000 agreed upon by the tripartite committee on minimum wage.
The Organised Labour has insisted that the Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage has concluded its assignment for onward submission to President Muhammadu Buhari.
