New Minimum Wage May Be Negotiated To N100, 000 Or N200,000 – NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says the new minimum wage may be negotiated to N100,000 or N200,000 owing to the rising cost of living.

While the union and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had planned to go on strike on Tuesday owing to the impact of the fuel subsidy removal, they shelved it following a meeting with government authorities in Abuja late Monday.

But according to the President of the NLC Joe Ajaero, the move was to give the government time to fulfill its part of the agreement reached with organised labour, adding that the N35,000 wage award – part of the government’s offers – is not a new minimum wage which he said may be up to N200,000
