Ahead of negotiations for the payment of a new minimum wage scheduled to commence in April 2024, the organised labour has submitted a list of its representatives who will represent Nigerian workers on the negotiation panel which is set to be constituted by the Federal Government.
For a new minimum wage to be implemented, a tripartite committee is often set up by the Federal Government to ensure smooth negotiations.
According to the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Muhammed Idris, the new minimum way will commence in April 2024.
Speaking during an interview on Thursday, the Head of Information of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Benson Upah, said though the union was not aware of the constitution of a new minimum wage panel, the government asked that the organised labour send a list of its representatives.
He said “The Federal Government reached out to them send in their nominees or names of those who would represent us on the committee late last year and they did comply promptly. However, stated that he is not aware the committee has been constituted.
Similarly, TUC Vice President, Tommy Etim, said the unions were worried over the late constitution of the panel. He, however, assured Nigerians that “no stone would be left unturned to effectively negotiate with the government on the National Minimum Wage.”
