The Minister of Labour & Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, said that total upward review of government workers is being considered by the Federal government as part of its efforts to cushion the effect of hardship faced in the country
He hinted this when he delivered a speech at the public presentation of a compendium of NLC at 40 publication titled, “Contemporary History of Working Class Struggles” in Abuja on Monday
The labour minister said the adjustment is imperative following the current economic hardship experienced world over and in Nigeria particularly. Ngige said: “The inflation is worldwide we shall adjust the minimum wage in conformity with what is happening and much more important, the 2019 Minimum Wage Act has a new clause for a review
That adjustment has started with ASUU because the stage they are at with their primary employers, the ministry of education, is a Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations.”
