Minimum Wage: Labour, FG meet to avert industrial action


In Bid To Avert National Shutdown the federal government of Nigeria and organized labour are currently locked in a closed-door meeting over the implementation of N30,000 new minimum wage.

The meeting chaired by the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, is said to be part of governments efforts to prevent the industrial action planned for 17th October.

Both the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress and the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council are participating in the latest meeting with the Minister of Labour.

Labour leaders had issued a joint communique earlier October, warning that they can not guarantee industrial harmony by October 16, if the Federal Government fail to reconvene a meeting of the committee on consequential adjustments.

President Muhammadu Buhari had in April signed the N30,000 National Minimum Wage Bill into law, but workers are yet benefit from the new wage.
