Strike: Labour Union, FG Meets Over Minimum Wage Deadlock



Minimum wage

The Federal Government has met with the leadership of the organised labour in Nigeria over the implementation of the N30,000 new national minimum wage deadlock.

Naija News learnt that the meeting started at around 11am on Monday as the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, who presided over the meeting, described it as an information-sharing one which flows from the previous meeting between the government and the labour leaders.

The minister also assured the union leaders that he would remain neutral in the whole negotiation.

He, however, appealed to members of the union to show some understanding.

Ngige announced that there would be another meeting with heads of government agencies and parastatals, where their books would be opened for scrutiny to see what amount can actually be paid to workers.

The meeting, according to him, will hold on Tuesday.
