Minimum wage: Trade Union gives state governors new deadline
State governors have been given a fresh ultimatum by the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on the implementation of the newly approved minimum wage.
The union said all state governments that fail to comply with the implementation of the new N30,000 minimum wage by January 31, will face an industrial action by its members in such states.
This was contained in a statement released by the union on Thursday, January 9. The president of TUC, Quadri Olaleye, said only six states have complied with the implementation process.
Olaleye said: “As at now and by our record, only six states have signed and commenced implementation, 15 states are in the process of negotiation, while the rest are yet to commence negotiation.
“We want to assure them this is not an empty threat. Labour will shut down any state that has not yet started the implementation or negotiation.”
