New wage: NLC gives May 1 deadline

The President of NLC, Ayuba Wabba

Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it is giving the Presidency up till April to resolve the issues on a new national minimum wage.

The congress is proposing N56,000 wage, while the United Labour Congress is demanding N96,000.

NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, speaking again on the demand in Abuja, asked the Presidency to constitute a tripartite panel that will begin negotiations on the proposed new wage before May 1.

After May 1, Wabba warns that the organized labour will resort to maximum force to compel the implementation of a new minimum wage, which according to him is long overdue.
