Labour rejects FG’s fresh minimum wage proposal

The labour union, during their meeting on Tuesday, declined the Federal government’s N60k minimum wage proposal.

This marks the fourth offer presented within approximately two weeks following the resumption of negotiation discussions.

The organised Labour also reduced its demand from ₦497,000 to ₦494,000.

A member of the Tripartite Committee for the negotiation of a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers made this known during the ongoing meeting.

The government had initially proposed ₦48,000 and ₦54,000 last week, which were also rejected by the Organised Labour.

It then proposed the sum of N57,000 but labour leaders turned down the offer.

The Organised Labour had also presented ₦615,000 as the new minimum wage but saw reasons to drop their demand from to ₦497,000 last week and then to ₦494,000 on Tuesday.

There are growing concerns that the Tripartite Committee for the negotiation of a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers is yet to agree on a new minimum wage just about three days before the May 31 deadline.
