JUST IN: NLC and TUC kick after Tinubu’s government offers to pay N48000 as new minimum wage

The organised labour, comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) has walked out of the minimum wage committee meeting with the Federal Government over the later’s offer of N48,000 new wage.

Recall that the organized labour had made a demand of N615,000 as the new minimum wage and had given the government up till May 31 to conclude negotiations on new living wage.

The Tripartite Committee on New National Minimum Wage resumed negotiations on Wednesday.

However, the unions were enraged over the government offer and walked away while the negotiation was ongoing.

Professor Theophilus Ndubuaku, who is one of the representatives of the NLC told Vanguard that, “we asked whether the N45,000 is for transport, food, clothing, housing or for what.

“So we just told them that since they are not serious, we better just leave, so we stormed out of the place.”

He said that the government offer was presented to them by the Permanent Secretary, Secretary to the Government of the Federation Office.

Also a TUC source said said; “Labour presented first and we stood on our N615,000 proposal after which the OPS presented N54,000. Later the government came and proposed N48,000. There was no iota of seriousness.

“There was no data to back it up and that was the moment we walked out. When they are ready to be serious, they will call us.”
