Organised labour have announced plans to embark on industrial action if the current state of affairs as regards the issue of 30,000 nairanew national Minimum wage.
In a press statement in Abuja, the TUS Acting Chairman, ANCHAVER SIMON, expressed disappointment by government’s effort to derail the implementation of a new National Minimum Wage.
He said if the Federal Government fails to call its officials to order and direct them to negotiate openly, workers at the Federal and 36 States Public Services will have no other alternative than to take some necessary Trade Union actions to seek redress.
According to the TUS, it received a rude shock at the last meeting of the Technical Committee when the government side began to hold on to a non-existent position that the Technical Committee’s term of reference was to base its assignment in respect of salary adjustment on what was provided for it in the 2019 budget.
