Breaking: NLC Rejects N27,000 Minimum Wage, Threaten Strike

By Galaxy - 27 days ago

The Nigeria Labour Congress has rejected the N27,000 new national minimum wage adopted by the National Council of States on Tuesday.

 

The NLC Secretary-General, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, made this known to the newsmen in  Abuja.

 

According to him, the council has no jurisdiction determining another amount after a Tripartite Committee had submitted its report.

 

“It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states,” he said.

 

However, Ozo-Eson said the NLC has scheduled an emergency National Executive Council meeting for Friday to weigh on the deadline given to government within which to submit an executive bill to the National Assembly.

 

The NLC scribe added that the Federal Government was only projecting a shutdown of the economy with its latest action.

 

“This is because workers should not be held responsible for any development after its NEC meeting on Friday,’’ he said.
