We Will Never Accept FG’s New Minimum Wage – Labour


The organized labour says it would reject any minimum wage less than N30,000 and would not go into any other meeting with the Federal Government on the matter.

The President, United Labour Congress (ULC), Mr Joe Ajaero, on Tuesday said the tripartite committee had agreed that N30, 000 would be paid at the end of its negotiation as the New Minimum Wage for workers.

He said it was sad that N30, 000 was adopted by the tripartite committee but the representatives of government announced N24, 000.

The labour leader said that the organised labour would stand against it and would not sign any document which does not reflect the true deliberation by the tripartite committee.

He said that the committee had concluded its meeting on the new wage and labour was expecting the government to invite them to sign an agreement on the decision.

”N24, 000 can never be the new Minimum Wage for workers. If the government pays it, then it is an award,” he said.
