Labour To Decide On Strike As Minimum Wage Talks End Today

Published

on

 

The ongoing negotiation between Organized Labour and the Federal government representatives as regards new minimum wage will be concluded today, with no agreement in sight.

The negotiations, which have taking several twists and turns, are under pressure as the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) leaders have set a Monday deadline for resolution.

It would be recalled that on Friday, June 7, the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage wrapped up its deliberations with the government and the Organised Private Sector settling on N62,000.

However, Labour has maintained its stance, as they want a N250,000 minimum wage, which is significantly higher than the government’s proposal.

The Nigeria Governors Forum, however , voiced concerns, labelling any wage above N60,000 as unsustainable for state administrations, highlighting the ongoing struggle to balance worker demands with governmental fiscal capabilities.

Speaking to Punch, Labour representatives disclosed that the outcome now depends on President Tinubu’s response to the committee’s recommendations.

He said:

“We have submitted the report to the president and we are waiting for him to make his decision. That is the most important thing and that is what we are all waiting for.

“As it stands some of us are on the way to Geneva for the ILO conference. Some of us are going today (Sunday), some have gone already“.Before we can even hold a NEC meeting, we must come back from Geneva first. Also, we are trying to be careful so the government won’t say Labour is inciting citizens against the government. Also, you know they are in charge of the military so we are trying to be careful about that. This is why we are waiting.”

When asked about Monday’s ultimatum, another source within the NLC said,

“Well, we have sent a report to the committee and we are expecting the president to act on it.

“We should hold a National Executive Council meeting regarding the ultimatum when we return from Geneva. It is very important for us to be there but right now, we are patiently waiting for the decision of Mr President.”
