The meeting between the federal government and organised labour over the implementation of the minimum wage and how it affects all grades of workers has ended in Abuja.
Leader of the team, Rotimi Asugwuni said deliberations will continue on Wednesday to fine tune what he calls grey areas. He said commitment has so far been shown by the government but insists areas in contest are critical to labour.
Labour has urged the federal govt to shift ground in the interest of the workers.
Labour is asking for twenty nine per cent salary increase for officers on grade level seven to fourteen and twenty four per cent adjustment for officers on grade level fifteen to seventeen.
This is against the Federal Government’s offer of eleven per cent for officers on grade level seven to fourteen and six point five per cent for workers of grade level fifteen to seventeen.
