Minimum Wage: ‘All Agreements Between Labour, FG Must Be Implemented’ – TUC



The Trade Union Congress, TUC, has urged the Federal Government to implement all agreements reached with organised labour in 2023, especially the national minimum wage.

Festus Osifo, TUC President, said this in a 2024 New Year message he jointly signed with Nuhu Toro, Secretary General of the union, on Wednesday in Abuja.

The message is titled “Our Hope is not Renewed Yet.”

Osifo, who said that TUC had in 2023 strived to ensure that social dialogue with the Federal Government prevailed, accused the government of failing to implement basic agreements reached with labour.

He said labour had insisted that the October 2, 2023, agreements be notarised by the court.

According to him: “However, the government has serially violated the agreements. For instance, Item 2 states that: ‘A minimum wage committee shall be inaugurated within one month from the date of this agreement.’ Today, three months after, no such committee has been set up and this is our experience with this government on at least two previous agreements reached from June.

“TUC has resolved to demand from the Tinubu administration that in 2024, all agreements between labour and government should be implemented. This includes the payment of the monthly N35,000 wage award to public servants in the local government, state and federal services. This must be implemented until a new national minimum wage is implemented.”
