BREAKING: Labour Walks Out Of Minimum Wage Meeting, Set For May 31 Showdown

 Labour has walked out of the minimum wage meeting with FG and is set for a May 31 showdown bearing any last-minute offer.



NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that the Organised Labour on Tuesday, May 28, staged a walkout during the Tripartite Committee meeting on Minimum Wage, rejecting the federal government’s increased offer of N60,000.

The labour union, however, shifted its position from its previous stance of ₦497,000 to ₦494,000.


This Nigeria news platform understands that the government had initially proposed ₦48,000 and ₦54,000 last week, both of which were rejected by labour.


Today’s meeting ended in a deadlock, with no agreement reached on the new minimum wage.

With the labor unions’ deadline approaching on May 31, the Tripartite Committee tasked with negotiating a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers has yet to reach a consensus.
