Some members of the organized labour were Tuesday at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in Abuja, for a meeting to finalize negotiations over the new minimum wage.
President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, his general secretary and some representatives of the Trade Union Congress, as well as the chairman of the National Income and Wages Commission, were sighted arriving the premises.
Also present is the Governor of Kebbi State, who is one of the governors’ representatives in the tripartite committee and the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige.
The meeting comes twenty four hours after the labour leaders boycotted a meeting convened by the Federal Government.
The labour leaders who are seeking an upward review of the current minimum wage from eighteen thousand Naira to thirty thousand naira had earlier threatened to commence a nationwide strike tomorrow if the government failed to meet their demands.
