Labour walks out of minimum wage negotiation meeting with FG

Labour walks out of minimum wage negotiation meeting with FG

On Wednesday, organised labour walked out of the current minimum wage discussions with the federal government.

The situation occurred after the FG and the Organised Private Sector (OPS) offered wages of N48,000 and N54,000, respectively. The offer was criticised as "ridiculous" by organised labour.

Allnews.ng gathered that while the FG could not present any statistics to support its plan, unlike Organised Labour, the OPS stated that none of its members earn less than N78,000.

Benson Upah, the spokesman for the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), confirmed the exit to Daily Post by phone.

"Yes, we are out," he said. We're about to address the press, and you'll receive the information then."
