Minimum Wage: Ekiti Labour Leaders Reject Governor Fayemi’s Offer (See Why)



Minimum Wage

The organized labour in Ekiti State has warned Governor Kayode Fayemi against going forward with his proposed plan to adjust the payment of salary.

Naija News learnt that leaders of the labour union gave the warning in a statement jointly signed by the secretaries of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Mohammed Bashman; Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Akinyemi Taiwo, and Public Service Joint Negotiating Council (PSJNC), Gbenga Olowoyo, respectively.

Speaking on the decision of the governor, the labour leaders insisted that whatever the Fayemi administration would implement must be in consonance with the national template increment of 66.6 per cent for Grade Levels 01 to 06, 29 per cent for 07 to 14 and 24 percent for 15 to 17.

The labour leaders also expressed hope that Governor Fayemi would fulfil his promise to settle the N57billion outstanding workers’ salaries, allowances and pension before clocking one year in office on October 16.
