Minimum Wage: Labour demands 5-month arrears from FG

- TUC wants the payment of newly agreed minimum wage to be backdated to April when President Buhari signed the bill into law

- The labour union said this is important so as not to cause another crisis between workers and the government

- TUC's acting chairman, Anchaver Simon, said the union will take action against any organisation that fails to pays below the new minimum wage structure

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has reportedly called on the federal government to pay five months arrears of the new minimum wage when the payment begins this month.

The labour union which was part of the organised labour which negotiated the full implementation of the new minimum wage across all levels said it wants minimum wage payment to be backdated to April 18 when President Muhammadu Buhari signed the new minimum wage bill into law.

This, according to Premium Times, was revealed in a statement by the acting chairman of the union, Anchaver Simon, and the secretary, Alade Lawal.
