The Organized Labour in Ogun State has asked the state government to, immediately, enter into a negotiation with its leaders on the adjustment of the new national minimum wage for workers earning 30,000 naira and above monthly.
Two letters have been written by labour leaders in the state to the Abiodun administration to constitute a joint committee to negotiate the wage adjustment.
Chairman of the trade union congress in the state, Bunmi Fajobi, who made this known while appearing on a Rockcity Fm programme, daybreak show, says government is yet to respond to the letters.
Fajobi says labour will decide on its next line of action if the state government should further delay the setting up of the joint committee.
The TUC chairman said that both TUC and Nigeria Labour Congress had already received directive from their national headquarters in Abuja and were just awaiting the state officials of the state public service negotiating council who were in Abuja for the same purpose.
Organized labour, according to the TUC chairman, is ready to enter into talks with state government, which must hold very urgently, to cope with the arrears of the new wage which have continued to rise.
