FG and Labour Set To Reconvene Next Week For Crucial Minimum Wage Talks

The Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage will meet again on Tuesday, May 23 to continue negotiating a fair new minimum wage for workers following organized labor’s withdrawal from the negotiations on May 15.

According to a letter of invitation that committee chairman Bukar Goni wrote to labor leaders, the other committee members have decided to change their minds about the N48,000 suggestion that was made on Wednesday.

The labor leaders were urged in the letter to address their members and show up for the meeting that would be held again on Tuesday.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), which are representatives of organized labor, have suggested a new minimum salary of N615,000, which is much more than the N48,000 that the government had suggested.

However, an initial offer of N54,000 was made by the organized private sector. Following the termination of the negotiations, the labor leaders had a news conference where they vented their displeasure with the Federal Government’s offer.

The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, had earlier pushed for a minimum salary of N615,000, claiming that the figure had been determined via consideration of the demands of the typical Nigerian family of six as well as the country’s present economic climate.
