Buhari to clampdown on labour *Okays white paper on enforce no-work-no-pay rule

The Muhammadu Buhari Administration is about to clampdown on labour strikes as the government has approved a draft white paper on implementation of ‘no work, no pay’ policy.

The clause which is contained in section 43 of the Trade Dispute Act would be transmitted to the National Assembly very soon. Arising from the weekly Federal Executive Council (NEC), it was learnt that other reforms contained in the white paper which government plans to use in checkmating the excesses of unionists includes specified tenure timeframe for union’s executives, parties to represent government and unions in collective bargaining agreement, maximum of seven years’ time frame for resident doctors to conclude their programme among others.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige who briefed State House correspondents of the development, however confirmed that the National Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage has not reached a truce yet on a consensus benchmark for wages.

He explained that state governments are still insisting on N20,700 as the least they can afford, while federal government has not shifted ground from N24,000 even though the organized labour have pegged their minimum on N30,000 respectively.
