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

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

Appeals of some workers to be allowed to pick things from their offices fell on deaf ears.

Recall that organised labour had declared a seven-day nationwide warning strike after the meeting with the federal government ended in a deadlock on Wednesday. Labour is demanding an upward review of the minimum wage from N18,000 to between N50,000 and 65,000.
