Fresh FG – NLC clash brewing. Governors may renege on wage agreement

The implementation of the agreement between the labour and Government may still be a subject of controvesy as governors, met with President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday with a demand that the  states should receive 42 per cent of the federal allocation as against the current 26.70 per cent.

The governors met in Abuja and decided that they would not pay arrears of salaries to senior civil servants under the new Minimum Wage Act, contrary to the deal they made with organised labour on the basis of which the threatened three-day warning strike was called off at the last minute on Tuesday. – Punch

The labour is said to have reacted to this provocation saying that should the Government renege on its Tuesday agreement they would embark on an indefinite strike without forewarning and not even negotiate with the Government until after the strike.
