Image result for Labour insists govs risk impeachment over non-implementation of new minimum wageOrganised Labour has appealed to state Houses of Assembly to consider the plight of workers by compelling governors to pay the new national minimum wage.

Some governors have said they would not pay beyond their capacities but the Nigeria Labour Congress says any of them who refuses to pay should be impeached.

General-Secretary of the union, Emmanuel Ugboaja, discloses that organised labour is in support of the return of the Labour Advisory Council, which would help to mediate between government and workers.

He also urges the federal government to take action against employers who would not pay the new wage.
