Organized Labour has pulled out of the ongoing minimum wage negotiations after the government and the organized private sector (OPS) made what labour described as “laughable offers” of N48,000 and N54,000 respectively.

Insiders at the meeting revealed that the government failed to substantiate its proposal with data, unlike the Labour Union.

Conversely, the OPS claimed that none of its members earn less than N78,000.

The withdrawal of Organized Labour from the negotiations comes as a significant setback in the efforts to establish a new minimum wage in the country which they demanded over (600,000) six hundred thousand naira.

The government and the OPS have been engaged in discussions with labour unions to determine a suitable minimum wage that balances the needs of workers and the ability of employers to pay. However, the wide gap between the offers made by the government and the OPS, and the rejection of these offers by Organized Labour, suggests that a consensus may be difficult to reach.

The stalled negotiations have raised concerns about the potential impact on industrial relations and the overall economic climate in the country. As the negotiations continue, it remains to be seen whether the parties involved will be able to find a middle ground and reach an agreement that satisfies the interests of all stakeholders.
