Minimum Wage: Ondo NLC Awaits Response From National Body
The Ondo state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress has maintained that the position of the national body of the Union will determine its next line of action over the proposed 22,500-naira minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Governor's Forum.
The secretary of the state union chapter, comrade Adewale Sanusi made this known in a phone conversation with our Bounce News correspondent in Akure.
According to him, the Nigeria Labour Congress has not been officially communicated by the Governor's Forum on the outcome of their Tuesday meeting.
"The fact that we read it on media does not mean we have been officially communicated with the outcome of their meeting. As things stand, we are still going ahead with our planned industrial action.
"But be that as it may, the National leaders of our union will meet today in Abuja to officially address the press on our stand regarding the 22,500-naira minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Governor's Forum.
"So the outcome of the meeting will determine our next move but I can assure you that the Governors' proposal cannot see the light of the day" Sanusi confirmed.
The state labour union led by it's chairman, comrade Tayo Ogunleye had joined their counterparts across the country to embark on a sensitization protest in Akure, the state capital on Tuesday.
The protest was aimed at sending a warning signal to the Federal government on the planned nationwide strike scheduled for November 6 to press home their demand for 30,000-naira minimum wage.
