Nigerian workers expect new minimum wage by March – NLC chairman


The National Chairman of the Nigeria Labor Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ahaero, has expressed confidence that the new minimum wage negotiations between the federal government and labor organizations will be concluded by March this year.

“The federal government, through a letter, has requested organized labor to publish our names to the newly established Minimum Wage Commission,” Ajayero said in a telephone interview with reporters on Thursday.

“The list has been submitted to the government since last year and for the first time since the commission was established, we are negotiating with the government as a trade union to agree the list.

“As the current minimum wage expires by March of this year, it is hoped that new minimum wage negotiations will be concluded by March.”

Regarding the federal government's wage award to Nigerian workers, he said only one month had been paid and that “everyone should be released to work by the end of January this year.”
