Minimum wage: “All agreements between workers and the FG must be fulfilled” – TUC

The Trades Union Congress, TUC, called on the federal government to implement all agreements reached with organized labor in 2023, in particular the national minimum wage.

TUC President Festus Osifo said this in his 2024 New Year message jointly signed with the union’s Secretary-General, Nuhu Toro, in Abuja on Wednesday.

The title of the message is “Our Hopes have not yet been renewed.”

Mr Osifo said the TUC had worked hard to ensure social dialogue prevailed with the federal government in 2023, accusing the government of not implementing the basic agreement reached with workers.

He said the labor side is insisting that the October 2, 2023 agreement be notarized by the court.

According to him, “However, the government continues to violate the agreement.'' For example, paragraph 2 states: “The Minimum Wage Commission shall be established within one month from the date of this agreement.'' It has been described as. Today, three months later, no such committee has been established. This has been our experience with the government on at least two previous agreements reached since June.

“The TUC has resolved to call on the Tinubu administration to implement all agreements between labor and management by 2024, including a monthly payment of N35,000 to civil servants in local, state and federal government services; This includes the payment of wage incentives. This must be in place until the new national minimum wage is implemented.”
