NLC, TUC, rejects Federal Government’s 48,000 Naira Minimum Wage Proposal

The Organised Labour has rejected the 48,000 Naira proposed by the Federal Government as minimum wage for public service workers.
The government’s position was presented to labour at the resumed tripartite committee meeting.
In protest, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) walked out of the meeting, which held virtually.
A joint statement by President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero and Deputy President of the TUC, Comrade Tommy Okon, noted that the two labour centres said the wage proposal by the government was not just a mockery but an insult to workers dignity.
Recall that President Bola Tinubu on May Day promised workers a living wage, assuring their days of waiting for a living wage were over.
