Tripartite Labour Meeting Ends in Deadlock, to Reconvene Later Today


The tripartite minimum wage negotiation meeting involving Organised Labour, the Federal and State Governments, and the Organised Private Sector, yesterday ended in deadlock, following Labour’s dismissal of the government’s N54,000 offer.

According to Labour, the N54,000 offer falls below the N77,000 salary its workers are earning.

Labour Leaders also lamented the absence of State Governors in the meeting to present their offers, as their representatives said they had no mandate.

It would be recalled that Labour walked out of last week’s meeting after rejecting the government and the Organized Private Sector, OPS, new minimum wage proposals of N48,000 and N54, 000 respectively.

The meeting will reconvene today by 4 pm.
