Tinubu to meet with labour over minimum wage Thursday

Tinubu to hold meeting with labour on minimum wage talks

President Bola Tinubu has invited the organised labour to a meeting at the Aso villa on Thursday to agree on a new minimum wage, sources close to the matter are saying.

According to a source in organised labour, Tinubu is willing to settle the lingering talks on minimum wage on Thursday and has invited the joint union presidents to a meeting.
Government authorities and presidency sources are yet to confirm this to Businessday.

The Federal Executive Council FEC has at its last meeting said it stepped down the Minimum Wage discussions to allow the President to embark on wider consultation.

A leader of the Organised Labour who spoke to BusinessDay on condition of anonymity, however, refused to give further details about the meeting venue and time.

” All I can say now is that the President has invited us for discussions”

When pressed further, our source simply said “The time and venue will be revealed later, but the meeting will take place very soon”.
