Again, Labor Rejects N54, 000 New Minimum Wage.

Organized Labor has on Tuesday rejected the N54, 000 proposed by the Federal government as new minimum wage.

Federal Government had in a meeting with Labor proposed N54, 000 as against its earlier N48, 000 offer. One of the leaders of the organized labour who attended the meeting revealed this to Vanguard in a telephone conversation.

Recall that Organized Labor comprising of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress, walked out on the Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage following the proposed N48, 000 as minimum wage by the Federal Government.

It also asked the government to be serious with negotiations on the issue of workers’ wages, insisting that it used the lowest minimum in arriving at N615,000 as the new minimum wage.
