TUC Frowns Against Bill on Minimum Wage Removal from Concurrent List

(Last Updated On: 2017-04-27)


The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has condemned reported call for the removal of National Minimum Wage from the Exclusive list to the Concurrent list by “the House of Representatives in a bill being sponsored by one of its members.

TUC in a statement issued by its President, Comrade Bobboi Bala Kaigama on Wednesday“sees this in bad light and as an attempt to alter the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from the back door”.

He said: “For the umpteenth time, it needs be emphasized that labour rather than politicians have held this country together even from colonial days. Any attempt to openly or surreptitiously undermine the Nigerian workers or labour movement shall be resisted with all arsenals within our control. To be for warned is to be for armed”.
