Labour, FG meet today on minimum wage

Organised labour and the Federal Government will on Friday (today) resume negotiation over the implementation of the new minimum wage of N30,000.

Labour, through the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council, has been negotiating with the Federal Government since June 6, 2019.

The Secretary of the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council, Alade Lawal, in an exclusive interview with our correspondent, said labour was optimistic that the  meeting would spell a new direction towards ending the controversy surrounding negotiation.
