Written by AIGBOKHAEBHO OKHUELEIGBE on May 18, 2021
The organised labour has rejected withdrawal of minimum wage and consequential adjustment by Ekiti state government.
The organised labour, which comprises the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC), met Governor Kayode Fayemi in a closed-door meeting on the
state of the economy, calling for release of subventions to state-owned tertiary institutions.
In a statement signed by the NLC Chairman, Kolapo Joshua Olatunde; TUC Chairman, Sola Adigun and JNC Chairman, Kayode Fatomiluyi, after the meeting, the unions condemned any attempt under any guise to further impoverish workers and all vulnerable groups in Ekiti State, describing it as inhumane and unacceptable.
