Labour leaders in states will begin negotiations next week on the consequential adjustments for the new minimum wage of N30,000.
The Joint Public Service Negotiating Council, which negotiated the consequential adjustments at the federal level, has already given directives to their state counterparts to begin negotiations.
And the government has released the circular detailing the template negotiated at the federal level to labour leaders.
The Joint Negotiating Councils at the state levels are expected to use this template to open negotiations with their state governments.
So far, only a few state governmentss have indicated interest in paying the N30,000 minimum wage. They are Lagos, Kaduna, Edo, and Zamfara states. Others are yet to make a move.
