Minimum Wage negotiations deadlocked again


Talks aimed at reaching a compromise on a new minimum wage for public sector workers have hit an impasse, as labor unions have once again walked out of the negotiations.

According to sources familiar with the discussions, the government has failed to propose an amount higher than the 60,000 Naira it had previously offered when the parties met earlier this week.

This latest development suggests that the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress may now begin mobilizing for strike action. The two labor groups have scheduled a press conference for 4pm at their national headquarters to potentially announce next steps.

The continued deadlock in the minimum wage negotiations underscores the wide gap between the government’s position and the demands of organized labor. With the labor unions signaling a willingness to take industrial action, there are growing concerns that the impasse could lead to a prolonged dispute unless a compromise can be reached in the coming days.
