The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, on Thursday demanded N794,000 as the new national minimum wage for workers in the South West geopolitical political zone.

The chairperson of NLC in Lagos State, Funmi Sessi, made the demand at the ongoing public hearing of the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage in Ikeja.

Sessi disclosed that the demand was jointly agreed on by all the members of the union in the Southwest.

On January 30, 2024, President Bola Tinubu inaugurated a 37-member panel on the new minimum wage in the Council Chamber of the State House in Abuja.

Organized labour and the Federal Government have been negotiating a new minimum wage for workers given the current economic hardship in the country.
