Ondo State government has disclosed plans to pay the N30,000 minimum wage to its workers as soon as the ongoing negotiation between the Organised Labour and the State Government is concluded.
The governor said, Ondo, is among the very few states already discussing the implementation of the new minimum wage.
He said: “The Organised Labour and Government have been having discussions and negotiations, and we are fined tuning our conclusions to ensure that we come up with the most acceptable and sustainable salary structure, considering the financial strength of the State. I wish to assure you that payment of the new wage would commence as soon as the on-going discussion and negotiation are concluded.”
Both the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC) and Trade Union Congress(TUC) in the state also said negotiations were on with the state government, stressing that payment of N30,000 for workers are non-negotiable.
