Labour Unions Yet To Reach An Agreement With Government – NLC
The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Dr Ayuba Wabba, has revealed that reports of an agreement with the government on a 20 per cent and 13.5 per cent adjustment for workers on Grade Levels 7-14 and 15-17 are mere speculations as no deal has been made with the Federal Government.
Wabba disclosed that although both parties had made concessions, there were still discussions for an agreement on the salary adjustments.
We have made progress in many areas. The areas we are talking is that of implementation and the consequential adjustment; that is the only subject matter that is under consideration and that is the subject matter we are trying to conclude and ensure that there is an agreement and then we can share with you.
We should work on the basis of information that is credible and we will be able to give you that information at the appropriate time.Ayuba Wabba – pmnewsnigeria.com
