Minimum Wage: Source Reveals Labour’s Demand During Meeting With SGF, FG Delegation

Organized labour during the meeting of the tripartite committee on new minimum wage with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, on Monday made a fresh demand.

According to a source at the meeting, the labour leaders insisted that the government must commit to a specific figure as the new minimum wage for Nigerian workers to enable them to return to their organs for deliberations.

However, the source, which was quoted by TVC, said the federal government wants the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to return to the negotiation table.

The parties are, however, still locked in deliberations.

At the time of filing this report, the meeting, which started at about 5pm, was still ongoing at the office of the SGF.
