Workers Stranded As NLC Shuts Down Lagos Secretariat (Photos)

Many workers were stranded on Thursday as officials of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) shut down the Alausa secretariat in Lagos.

After sealing the main gate of the complex, the union members moved into the complex to ensure that offices were under lock and key.

Leadership of the NLC had declared a nationwide strike after a meeting with the federal government ended in a deadlock. More photos...

The workers are demanding an upward review of the minimum wage from N18,000 to between N45,000 and 65,000.
