Organised Labour rejects FG’s proposed N60,000 minimum wage

Must read

The Organised Labour on Tuesday, May 28, staged a walkout during the Tripartite Committee meeting on Minimum Wage, rejecting the federal government’s increased offer of N60,000.

The labour union, however, shifted its position from its previous stance of ₦497,000 to ₦494,000.

The Nation reported that the government had initially proposed ₦48,000 and ₦54,000 last week, both of which were rejected by labour.

Today’s meeting ended in a deadlock, with no agreement reached on the new minimum wage.

With the labor unions’ deadline approaching on May 31, the Tripartite Committee tasked with negotiating a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers has yet to reach a consensus.
