The United Labour Congress (ULC) has said it did not sign an agreement with the Federal Government on the new National Minimum Wage.

This was said by the President of the ULC Joe Ajaero, on Tuesday, adding that the body did not agree on a minimum wage of less than N30,000 with the government.

”N24, 000 can never be the new Minimum Wage for workers. If the government pays it, then it is an award,” Ajaero said.

He added that “No more meetings. A date has been fixed to sign an agreement on the figure agreed.

“On that day, if the amount is not what the tripartite committee agreed, the organised labour will not sign.”
