FG, Labour Resume Wage Negotiations Today as NLC Rejects N54,000 Offer

Wage negotiations between the Federal Government and labour unions will resume today. Yesterday, the Federal Government raised its minimum wage offer from N48,000 to N54,000.



Labour unions, however, have stood firm on their demand for N615,000 and declined to lower their proposal.

In previous discussions, the private sector had offered N56,000 as a potential minimum wage.

Governors are expected to present their offer today, following consultations by their representatives at yesterday’s meeting.

A labour representative at the meeting deemed the Federal Government’s new offer of N54,000 unacceptable.

Labour unions also criticized the governors for their absence from the Tripartite Committee meetings.
