Negotiation between the Federal Government and the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council on the new minimum wage has again been rescheduled for September 16.

The Council’s Secretary General, ALADE LAWAL, who confirmed this to newsmen today in Lagos said the meeting was rescheduled at the instance of the officials.

 

You would recall that the negotiation between the government and the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council was earlier scheduled to hold on September 4, but was suspended.

 

The organised labour and the Federal Government have been in conflict over the implementation of the new minimum wage which was signed into law on April 18, and negotiation over the consequential adjustment of workers’ salaries as a result of the new minimum wage, had broken down due to unresolved differences in their proposals.

 

The President of the Nigerian Labour Congress, AYUBA WABBA, has however expressed the union’s readiness to support any position taken by the National Public Service Negotiating Council on the new national minimum wage.
