[BREAKING] Minimum Wage: NLC, TUC Set For Joint NEC Meeting

The Organised Labour, comprising the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), will commence a joint extraordinary National Executive Council in a few moments.

A source within the leadership of the two Labour Centres made this known on Tuesday morning. 

The outcome of the meeting will determine whether the strike by the organised Labour will continue or be suspended following the agreement reached between the leadership of Labour and the Federal Government

After a six-hour meeting with the leadership of organised labour in Abuja, the Federal Government expressed the commitment of President Bola Tinubu to raising the N60,000 offered as the minimum wage.

The agreement stated, “The President of Nigeria, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, is committed to establishing a National Minimum Wage higher than N60,000; and the Tripartite Committee will convene daily for the next week to finalise an agreeable National Minimum Wage.”

The organised labour also agreed to “immediately hold meetings of its organs to consider this new offer, and no worker would face victimisation as a consequence of participating in the industrial action.”

These resolutions were signed on behalf of the Federal Government by Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, and Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha.
