Nigerian Workers Should Reject Anything Below N66,500-AWC
The All Workers Convergence(AWC) has called on workers in Nigeria to reject the outcome of the tripartite committee on the new minimum wage and the decision of the Federal Government if it does not meet their expectations.
The AWC made this call through its National Coordinator, Comrade Andrew Emelieze, in a chat with Federationews2day.
''It is important that whatsoever is reached by the tripartite committee and the Federal Government, if it does not meet the expectations of Nigerians workers should be vehemently resisted and rejected by the Nigerian workers''.
''In fact it is a big a shame and a slap on government that workers will have to go on strike for a pay rise. We call on government to stop persecuting Nigerian workers and approve the N66,500 new minimum wage forthwith'', Comrade Emelieze concluded.
Nigerian workers are demanding for a new national minimum wage of N66,500, but the Federal Government is tinkering with the idea of approving between N25,000 and N30,000.
