Ekiti workers threaten strike over delayed minimum wage implementation
The Ekiti State workers yesterday threatened to embark on strike over delay in implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage and the consequential adjustment across board.
The workers expressed disenchantment with the way the negotiation for minimum wage and consequential salary adjustment had dragged on with no hope in sight for implementation for all workers.
Their position was contained in a statement signed by State Secretary of Joint Negotiating Council, Gbenga Olowoyo; State Secretary of Trade Union Congress (TUC), Kuloogun Lawrence and State Secretary of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Eniola Akinyemi, in Ado-Ekiti yesterday after a joint meeting.
The negotiating council said it had held several marathon meetings with government both at sub-technical committee and enlarged negotiation committee levels with no fruitful result.
