Organised labour unions on Thursday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to help resolve the dispute over the N30,000 new minimum wage.
The union and the federal government again failed to reach an agreement over the payment of the new minimum wage at a meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.
However, both parties will resume negotiations in Abuja next week.
According to the Punch Newspaper, “the labour unions insisted on their demands while government negotiators refused to improve on their proposals.”
“We maintained our earlier position and demand at the meeting. Government negotiators were not ready to move from their position also. We have (been) told to package our position and their own proposals and send to their principal (President Muhammadu Buhari) to look at the difference,” the Punch Newspaper quoted its source as saying.
