Minimum Wage impasse: Tinubu to meet NLC, TUC Thursday

Barring a last minute change in plan, President Bola Tinubu
will meet with the leaders of the Organised Labour on Thursday.

 

Tinubu will meet with labour leaders at the Presidential
Villa in Abuja to further discuss the new national minimum wage for Nigerian
workers.

 

The meeting, said to be at the instance of the President,
will have the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, in
attendance, Channels Television reports.

 

The Nigerian Government and organized labour have been at
loggerheads over the implementation of a new minimum wage for workers.

 

While labour is demanding N250,00, the Nigerian Government
had proposed N60,000 as the new national minimum wage.

 

The proposed meeting will come about a month after the
President promised to send an Executive Bill to the National Assembly on the
minimum wage.

 

Tinubu made the promise during his Democracy Day speech on
June 12, 2024.
