FG To Consider Trade Union Congress’ Demands, Plans To Review Minimum Wage


The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has issued a list of requests, which the federal government says it would take into consideration.

The Spokesperson for the Federal Government, Dele Alake, who spoke with State House correspondents after a meeting between the Federal Government and the TUC which lasted for about three hours, said the demands by TUC look practicable.

Alake added that the absence of the NLC does not translate to an isolation of the group in the discussion but that the federal government is making efforts to reach them as the parties agreed to reconvene on Tuesday 24 hours before a scheduled strike by the NLC.

On their part, the TUC has maintained that the federal government, in the interest of social dialogue, revert the price of fuel while discussions continue.

President of the TUC, Festus Osifo, said the union is hopeful as the federal government promised to look into their demands, the top of which is a review of the current minimum wage among others.
