Sign minimum wage Bill now, Labour tells Buhari

Organised labour under the aegis of Trade Union Side (TUS) of the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council (JNPSNC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the N30,000 National Minimum Wage Bill.This was coming on the heels of Senate’s approval of the bill last month.

In a statement, the union’s chairman, Abdrafiu Adeniji, and secretary, Alade Lawal, stressed that the current N18,000 minimum wage had become very inadequate, as workers were finding it extremely difficult to cope with daily challenges thrown up by skyrocketing prices of goods and services.

The group noted that Buhari’s quick signing of the wage bill into law would bring smile to the faces of workers.
