Organized Labour withdraws from minimum wage negotiations with FG



Minimum wage negotiations: Labour withdraws from talk with FG

In a significant turn of events, Organized Labour announced its withdrawal from the ongoing minimum wage negotiations with the Federal Government on Wednesday.

This decision came after the Federal Government and the Organized Private Sector (OPS) tabled offers of N48,000 and N54,000 respectively, which the labour union deemed “ridiculous.”

According to sources, the Federal Government failed to provide any supporting data for its proposal, unlike Organized Labour, while OPS asserted that none of its members pays less than N78,000.

Benson Upah, the spokesman of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), confirmed the withdrawal, stating, “Yes, we are out. We are about to address the press, and you will get the details then.”

Stay tuned for more updates as the situation unfolds.
