In efforts to facilitate progress and ensure prompt resolution of the negotiations for the new national Minimum Wage, Organised Labour has adjusted its initial minimum wage request from N615,000 to N500,000. (NOP) reports organised labour lowered the minimum wage demand during the current discussions at the Tripartite Committee meeting on the National Minimum Wage.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the TUC had walked out on the negotiation meeting as the Federal Government proposed N48,000 as new minimum wage for workers in the country.

Labour accused the government of failure to provide any substantiated data to support their N48,000 offer, stressing that lack of transparency and good faith undermines the credibility of the negotiation process.
