Following the just concluded marathon negotiation between the Federal Government and the organized labour, the latter yesterday demanded that the implementation of the N30, 000 new national minimum wage start from the day it was signed into law.
The new National Minimum Wage Bill was signed into law on April 18, 2019 by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The acting chairman of the Joint National Public Service Negotiation Council, Trade Union Side, Simon Anchaver and the secretary, Alade Bashir, made the call in a statement yesterday.
They said the implementation should start from April 18 so as not to trigger another avoidable round of agitation by workers and their trade unions.
They expressed hope that all sides at the just concluded negotiation had learnt few lessons that would enable them avoid similar mistakes in future.
