    The Federal Government and the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council (JNPSNC) meeting for negotiation on the new minimum wage has again been rescheduled for Sept. 16.

    Yans recalls that the last negotiation between the government and the JNPSNC was to hold on September 4, but was suspended.

    JNPSN Secretary General, Alade Lawal confirmed on Tuesday in Lagos that the meeting was rescheduled at the instance of the officials.

    The organised labour and the Federal Government have been in conflict over the implementation of the new minimum wage which was signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 18.

    Negotiation between the government and the JNPSNC, representing labour in the technical committee set up to negotiate the consequential adjustment of workers’ salaries as a result of the new minimum wage, had broken down due to unresolved differences in their proposals.

    While the Federal Government proposed 9.5 per cent salary increase for employees on grade levels 07 to 14 and five per cent for those on grade levels 15 to 17, labour is demanding 30 per cent increase for officers on grade levels 07 to 14 and 25 per cent increase for grade levels 15 to 17.

    President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, had told journalists that the congress would support any position taken by the JNPSN on the new national minimum wage.
