Nigeria Employers Consultative Association (NECA)has asked the Federal Government and the organized Labour, to resolve their differences over the implementation of the new national minimum wage for workers, earning n30,000 monthly and above.
The Association’s Director General, Timothy Adewale asks negotiators of both parties to compromise to break the stalemate in implementing the new wage.
He asks the negotiators not to be fixated on their positions, but reach a deal in the first week of September.
At present, about 80 percent members of the association are paying above n30,000 minimum wage for workers on their payroll.
President Muhammadu Buhari signed the new national minimum wage bill into law last April 18, but its full implementation for workers earning n30,000 and above monthly is being frustrated by negotiations.
