Minimum wage: labour warns on removal from exclusive list

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has expressed displeasure over moves by the National Assembly to remove the national minimum wage from the exclusive to the concurrent legislative list.

The Congress says is will embark on a nationwide protest on March 10, 2021, across the 36 states Houses of Assembly in reaction to the plans by the House of Representatives to alter the present wage structure, which gave the Federal Government the power to negotiate minimum wage for workers in the country.

The House of Representatives had last week debated a bill to remove the powers to negotiate wage matters from the exclusive to the concurrent list, citing the inability of state governors to pay the N30,000 minimum wage for the move.
