TUC Threatens to Go on Strike, Claiming that FG is Nonchalant about Deliberations of New Minimum Wage


According to the Trade Union Congress, TUC, the Federal Government has been nonchalant about its request.

The request to revisit the minimum wage and deliberate on a new one has been set upon by the Federal Government.

In a recent interview in Politics Today on Channels Television, the president of TUC, disclosed this.

Festus Osifo said the government has neglected the request that the organization made and has deliberately refused to look into it.

For this reason, he decided that the union would have to embark on a strike to show how serious the case was.

Osifo, in the interview, said, “The government must be very serious in addressing the new minimum wage issue.”

He made it clear that this was the only issue he was ready to face head-on.

This issue of a new minimum wage with the TUC and the Federal Government has lingered for a few months already.

For this matter, they had given an ultimatum of May 31st. The initial demand of the union was about ₦615,000 minimum wage.

However, they reduced the demand two times and it is now at ₦494,000.

The Government Minimum Wage Proposal

The organized private sector that is in charge of the case and the government proposed a wage of ₦48,000 to ₦54,000 initially.

This offer was not good enough for the labour, so it declined the offer, maintaining its stance.

Osifo said the meeting of the committee on minimum wage that happened on Tuesday, the 28th of May wasn’t fruitful.

He said the offer of the government was not good enough for the union.

Also, he further mentioned that the economic state of the country is not conducive for anyone to earn that low.

More so, Osifo said that inflation in Nigeria increased to 33.69% as of April.

So, when the government offered ₦60,000, he had to blatantly refuse for the good of the workers.
