Federal Government:- Labour Minimum Wage Meeting Ends In Deadlock Again

Fresh talks on negotiation concerning the implementation of the
new minimum wage between the Federal Government and the
Labour union stalled again on Friday, August 23, 2019.

The Labour union now expects President Muhammadu Buhari to
intervene in the matter.

Although President Buhari signed the new national minimum
wage bill into law on April 18, 2019, its implementation is yet to
start due to differences between labour and government on how
to spread the increase across the board.

Labour first tabled 30 per cent for workers on grade levels 7 to 14
and 25 per cent for those on levels 15 to 17 but later agreed to
come down to 29 per cent and 24 per cent respectively but the
Government is said to be insisting on 9.5 per cent and 5 per cent
respectively.

The meeting which took place at the Office of the Secretary to the
Government of the Federation had in attendance the permanent
secretaries of Ministries of Finance, Labour and Employment,
General Office of the SGF, and representative of the National
Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission.

Sources said both parties refused to shift their positions.

The meeting was adjourned to September 4, 2019, as the
government team reportedly resolved to take the position of both
sides in the negotiation to the President to intervene in the matter
and report back on the said date for continuation.
