The organized labour, including the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress, has withdrawn from the current minimum wage discussions.

This decision came after the government and the Organised Private Sector made what the unionists considered to be “unreasonable offers” of N48,000 and N54,000, respectively.

A TUC leader present at the meeting stated that the government did not support its proposal with any data, unlike the Organised Private Sector, which claimed that none of its members pays less than N78,000.

The TUC source said, “Labour presented first and we stood on our N615,000 proposal after which the OPS presented N54,000. Later the government came and proposed N48,000. There was no iota of seriousness. There was no data to back it up and that was the moment we walked out. When they are ready to be serious, they will call us.”

NLC has since called for an emergency press briefing.
