Organized Labor Rejects FG’s N45,000 Minimum Wage Offer

The Tripartite Committee, responsible for setting the national minimum wage, resumed negotiations with the Organized Labor, comprising the National Labor Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), today in Abuja.

The meeting didn’t go well, as the Organized Labor stormed out of it because of the Federal Government’s counteroffer of a N45,000 new minimum wage.

Recall that the Organized Labor had demanded a new minimum wage of N615,000 before imposing an ultimatum until May 31 to conclude negotiations on the wage.

In order to beat the deadline, the Tripartite Committee set up the meeting where the offer was presented by the Permanent Secretary, Secretary to the Government of the Federation Office.

The representatives of organized labor, however, were enraged by the offer that was presented and proceeded to storm out.

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.”
