Nigerian trade union rejects minimum wage recommendation -spokesman
ABUJA, Jan 22 (Reuters) - A leading Nigerian trade union has
rejected a recommendation that the national monthly minimum wage
be raised to 27,000 naira ($88) from 18,000 naira, its spokesman
said on Tuesday
The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, which represents senior
civil servants, said agreeing a minimum wage is a product of
negotiation and that the figure of 30,000 naira had been agreed.
A body that advises the government earlier recommended the
rise to 27,000 and the labour minister said a bill would be sent
($1 = 306.8000 naira)
