FG, Labour set up committee for minimum wage

26 May 2016, 10:52

Abuja - The federal government and the Nigeria Labour Congress have set up a 16 man committee to negotiate a new minimum wage for workers, Nation reports.

The committee which was a follow-up to talks on the way forward after the hike in petrol price—from N86.50 per litre to N145, was set up after a meeting between both parties in Abuja on Wednesday.

The Federal Government, also reconstituted the board of the Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), which is empowered to regulate prices of petroleum products and set up the template.

The government said it was unaware of the existence of factions within the NLC but said it was working with everybody to address issues raised by Labour.

News24 had reported that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) last weekend suspended its strike, which it initiated to protest the increase in petrol price.
