Labour Proposes N56,000 Monthly Minimum Wage To The Presidency

Nigeria labour congress (NLC) and trade union congress (TUC), have demanded from the federal government an upward review of the national monthly minimum wage from N18,000 to n56,000.

NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, addressing a news conference in Abuja, said the new wage demand had been submitted to the presidency.

He said the organized labour expects the presidency to set up a tripartite body made of the federal government, the organized labour and organized private sector, to open negotiation on the demanded N56,000 wage.

The NLC President said although the economy was down, the law requires that the national minimum wage must be reviewed upward every five years, adding that the last wage review was in 2011
