FG and NLC fail to reach agreement on new minimum wage Implementation

The Federal Government and representatives of organised labour have failed to reach an agreement on the full implementation of the new minimum wage, which includes the consequential adjustments of salaries for civil servants from grade level 7 to 17.

The Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Amaechi Asugwuni, while addresing newsmen in Abuja, said that the meeting will continue today as issues that remain critical will be addressed and finalise reach possible agreement.

The rescheduled meeting which is the deadline of the ultimatum issued by labour is also expected to iron out grey areas, and the Acting Head of Service who represented the Federal Government, Mrs Folasade Yemi-Esan stated that a final agreement will be reached after the meeting.
