FG vs NLC: Meetings Postponed Till Monday January 7 As No Agreement Was Reached Today

The current Negotiation on going between the federal government and leaders if the Organise Labour will continue on Monday, January 7 as no agreement could be reached today.

We should recall that the NLC had threaten to embark on a nationwide protest on January 8 to make government transmit the tripartite committee report on the N30,000 minimum wage to the National Assembly.

The labour ultimatum followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement that a high powered technical committee would be set up to study the report before transmitting to the legislatures

The federal government says it will continue negotiation with Organise Labour on Monday, January 7, to prevent the threat of strike over non transmission of the new national minimum wage to the national assembly.

Chris Ngige, minister of Labour and Employment said this after meeting with the labour leaders on Friday, January 4, in Abuja.
