Minimum wage: Labour rejects FG’s proposal

The negotiation committee set up by the Federal Government to negotiate the consequential adjustment arising from the N30,000 new minimum wage has rejected what the government is offering.

The committee, which was inaugurated on May 14, has also failed to meet the four-week deadline to submit its report.

However, members met twice last week with the enlarged membership collapsed into one technical committee of six members each from both sides.

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, who was appointed as chairman of the panel, stepped down for the chairman of the National Wages, Salaries and Income Commission to head the technical committee.

A principal officer of a labour union, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity, said government’s position on the consequential adjustment had been rejected by labour representatives in the committee.
