The minimum wage and consequential salary adjustment negotiation in Ekiti state is nearing 90% percent completion and shall be finally signed on or before ending of February 2020.
This assurance was contained in the press release issued and signed by both the State. Chairman JNC Comrade Kayode Fatomiluyi and JNC Secretary Comrade Gbenga Olowoyo.
According to the press release, the Negotiation of Minimum wage and consequential salary adjustment is receiving adequate attention and with tremendous progress, by this development, the completion and eventual signing of necessary documents will be completed before ending of February 2020.
The technical Sub-committee and the enlarged negotiation committee have done greatly which led to the extent that His Excellency Dr Kayode Fayemi the Governor of Ekiti state, personally intervened on Tuesday 18th February 2020.
However, the determination of the leadership of Labour in the state is to arrive at a situation where the table and agreement that will be signed with government will not trigger backlash effect or force the state Government to use two federal allocations to pay one month salary, hence, we have to be broad based in our approach and agitation.
