NLC warns state councils against rushing into new wage agreement

Workers umbrella body – the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) – has cautioned its state councils against rushing into negotiations with state governments on the minimum wage consequential adjustments.

It urged them to await the Federal Government’s template in line with last week’s agreement.

NLC’s Acting National President Amaechi Asuguni told reporters that the decision was part of the outcome of the NLC 2019 National Leadership Retreat that ended on Thursday at Nike Lake Resort, Enugu.

Asuguni, who is the Congress’ First Deputy President, stood in for the National President, Ayuba Wabba, who left the retreat on a trip outside the country.

He said the national leadership of NLC would send monitoring committees to states to ensure standardised agreements so that no state will shortchange others.
