Noting that negotiation was yet to commence in Imo, the labour leader urged state governments to make the wellbeing of their workers a priority.

The ASCSN advised the federal government to amend the 2014 Pension Act and expunge sections inimical to pensioners.

The National Minimum Wage signed into law on April 18, 2019, after years of deliberations and industrial action.
