The National Labour Congress has demanded that the Bauchi State Government resume negotiations and subsequently implement the new N30,000 national minimum wage in the state.
Speaking to Journalists on Friday, the state Chairman of the NLC, Danjuma Kirfi, said that the Bauchi government had 21 days to resume negotiations.
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 Organised Labour 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.”
Kirfi said the decision to give the government ultimatum was reached at the end of the joint state executive council meeting of the organised labour, held on Friday at the Union’s Secretariat in Bauchi.
