As workers in Nigeria await their bank alerts reflecting the new minimum wage, the Nigeria Labour Congress has cautioned its state councils against rushing into negotiations with state governments on the consequential adjustments.
First Deputy President of the Congress, Amaechi Asuguni, who told reporters that the decision was taken at the NLC 2019 National Leadership Retreat held in Enugu, urged them to await the Federal Government’s template in line with last week’s agreement.
Asuguni said the national leadership of the NLC would send monitoring committees to states to ensure standardized agreements so that no state will shortchange others.
According to Asuguni, since it was not an easy task reaching the agreement, there is need to put certain things in motion to come out with the table.
