Minimum Wage; Meeting Between Labour And FG Ends In Stalemate.

The meeting of the committee set up to reach an agreement on a new national minimum wage has ended in stalemate.

However, this end is only temporary, as the committee is set to reconvene at 10pm.

Briefing journalists at the end of a marathon meeting of the committee in Abuja, Ama pepple, the Chairman of the committee and former Head of Service of the Federation, said two figures — N24,000 proposed by the government and the N30,000 demanded by the organised labour — presented as the new national minimum wage, but no decision was reached.

She said when the committee appealed to the organized labour to call off the strike, they promised to consult and revert when the meeting reconvenes at 10pm.

So far, leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), United Labour Congress (ULC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have yet to take a decision on whether to postpone the industrial action.
