JUST IN: Labour Pulls Out of Minimum Wage Negotiations, After FG Offers N48,000, N54,000

Organized Labour withdrew from the ongoing minimum wage negotiations with the Federal Government on Wednesday.


This decision followed the Federal Government and the Organized Private Sector (OPS) offering wage proposals of N48,000 and N54,000, respectively.

Organized Labour dismissed these offers as “ridiculous.”

Unlike Organized Labour, the Federal Government provided no data to support its proposal. Meanwhile, the Organized Private Sector (OPS) claimed that none of its members pays less than N78,000.

Benson Upah, the spokesman for the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), confirmed their withdrawal in a telephone call with DAILY POST.

“Yes, we are out. We are about to address the press, and you will get the details then,” he stated.
