Labour Union rejects N30,000 minimum wage offer from FG, demands N56,000
The organised labour on Saturday rejected the resolution of the House of Representatives seeking the upward review of the minimum wage for Nigerian workers to N30,000 from the current N18,000.
The President of the Trade Union Congress, Bobboi Kaigama, told Punchng, on Saturday, that the organised labour is demanding N56,000. He stated that the labour unions were awaiting the executive arm of government to set up a committee to speed up the process.
“The procedure is for the tripartite body to sit down and agree on a figure, present it to the National Executive Council, National Council of State and to the National Assembly,” he said.
