NLC Proposes N709,000 As Minimum Wage

The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have suggested a new minimum salary of N447,000 and N709,000, respectively.

The data were given during the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage (TCNMW) North Central Zonal Public Hearing, which took place in Abuja on Thursday.

The leaders of the two labor organizations in the zone put out the statistics, but in their presentations, the state governments of Kwara, Nasarawa, and Niger failed to provide a particular value they advocated as the new minimum.
