Must read

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has on Monday, hermonized with the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC.

The president, ahead of today’s meeting with the organization labour, agreed to pay a minimum wage that is more than N60,000.

The Tripartite Committee, which has resumed sittings will meet every day in the next week to reach an agreement on the new minimum wage.

These are part of the agreement signed on Monday night after an eight-hour meeting between the Federal Government officials and Organised Labour leaders.

The meeting was called in the following the indefinite strike called by Labour over the wage crisis.

Also in the agreement is that Labour leaders will immediately call a meeting with their critical organs and take a decision on the one-day-old strike.

That workers may breathe Nigeria’s current wage structure is a lie and recipe for unending corruption
Labour is expected to call off the strike because the pact it signed precludes the government from victimising any union official who participated in the enforcement of the strike.

Those who signed the agreement on behalf of the Federal Government are Minister of Information and National Orientation Mohammed Idris and Minister of State (Labour and Employment) Nkeiruka Onyejeocha.

For Labour, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President Joe Ajaero and Trade Union Congress (TUC) President Festus Osifo signed.
