The NLC has called for speedy implementation of the Labour law just signed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement signed by it’s General secretary Dr Peter Ozo -Ezon, the union expressed appreciation that the law has been signed.
“We at the Nigeria Labour Congress wish to express our appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari for signing into law the new national minimum wage bill of N30,000.”
“We commend Mr President for doing the needful.”
“However, we would use this opportunity to call for immediate implementation of the law, given the fact that this process has dragged on for nearly two years.”
The Union urged employers, particularly federal and state governments, to commence immediate negotiations with the appropriate unions on the impact of the new law on the wage structure with a view to timely and judicious implementation.
