Daily Trusts reports that the president of the union, Quadri Olaleye, said the TUC is disturb that the FG seems not to be concerned about implementing the minimum wage. “From the look of things, it appears the Federal Government is not committed to implementing the new minimum wage arrangement going by the way its representatives in the committee set up to negotiate the consequential adjustment arising from the new minimum wage are handling the negotiation,” Olaleye said.

Olaleye said the organised labour had thought that consequential adjustment on the minimum wage would be negotiated openly. He said: “As it stands now, we may be forced to go to the trenches. We sincerely hope that the government will act fast and direct its representatives to return to the negotiation table with a more realistic mandate that will be beneficial to workers who have had to wait for almost a decade to get something meaningful added to their emoluments.”
