NLC reject #30,000minimum wage increase.

The organised labour on Saturday rejected the resolution of the House of Representatives seeking the upward review of the minimum wage for Nigerian workers to N30,000 from the current N18,000 The President of the Trade Union Congress, Bobboi Kaigama, said  that the organised labour is demanding N56,000.

However, Labour Congress on its part, commended the recommendation of the House of Representatives but said that the process to determine an approved minimum wage has started with a tripartite engagement involving the labour, the private sector and the government.

Meanwhile, members of the House of Representatives had warned that a nationwide strike by workers over low wages could force the country’s economy back into recession.

The procedure is for the tripartite body to sit down and agree on a figure, present it to the National Executive Council, National Council of State and to the National Assembly,”.

“We welcome the concerns of the House of Representatives members and we also beg them to put more pressure on government to institute the process of the tripartite committee so that it can be concluded and returned to the National Assembly,” he said.
