The National Labor Congress has given the Bauchi State Government 21 days ultimatum to resume negotiations and subsequently implement the new N30,000 national minimum wage in the state.
The state Chairman of the NLC, Danjuma Kirfi, told journalists at a press conference that the ultimatum was part of resolutions reached at the end of the joint state executive council meeting of the organized labor, held at the Union’s Secretariat in Bauchi on Friday.
He said, “Members view the absence of the commitment on the part of government representatives towards the resolutions and the subsequent implementation of the new national minimum wage in the state.
“The Organized Labor calls on the government to restore negotiations without further delay. That failure to conclude negotiations within the shortest period of time, the leadership will not guarantee the industrial atmosphere in the state.
“That government is hereby given 21 days ultimatum within which to conclude negotiations and implementation of the new national minimum wage in the state.”
