Organised Labour says it has yet to reach any agreement with the Federal Government on its demands following the removal of fuel subsidy.
It, however, said all its demands have been harmonised and presented to the FG for deliberation.
Trade Union Congress President, Festus Osifo stated this on Wednesday while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme.
Osifo was joined on the programme by his Nigeria Labour Congress counterpart, Joe Ajaero.
The TUC president said the items would be addressed at the June 19 meeting between Labour and FG’s team.
According to Osifo, “We have not reached any agreement with the government. We have presented our demands to them and we expect that by our next meeting, we will harmonise, the government will tell us what they can do and we will also bring our own data to the table during the meeting.
“When we meet, we are going to define each of those items and a timeline will be put on them. After the meeting on June 19, the timelines of each items are going to be revealed.”
Labour’s demands included reversal to the old pump price of N195 per litre; the increase of minimum wage from N30,000 to N200,000; tax holiday for employees in the private and public sector that earn less than N200 000; introduction of premium motor spirit allowance for those earning less than N200, 000; provision of mass transit for all categories of the populace and provision of subsidy for food items, among others.
NLC announced plans to go on strike next day after President Bola Tinubu, in his inauguration address, declared an end to the fuel subsidy regime in the country.
Following the presidential announcement, petrol marketers immediately shut down filling stations and increased fuel price.
NLC and TUC, however, halted their planned strike after a meeting with the FG team.
