Minimum wage committee postponed its meeting indefinitely as Labour disagrees with FG over fresh N60,000

Following the disagreement of the organised labour over the Federal Government’s proposed N60,000 after adding N3,000 to the initial N57,000, the Tripartite committee on minimum wage has postponed its meeting “sine die”, sources familiar with the matter told PUNCH in Abuja on Tuesday.

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, sine die means a situation “without any future date being designated (as for resumption): indefinitely.”
Legal choices, a law website, also describes sine die as a Latin word used when a law case has no fixed date for resumption.

The Informant247 gathered that the new proposed N60,000 minimum was pronounced during a meeting of the tripartite committee on minimum wage in Abuja.

Speaking with newsmen, one of the sources, a leader of the NLC, said, “The meeting ended in a stalemate, and meetings have been adjourned sine die.

“The government proposed N60,000, which was not accepted by Labour.”

The Labour had earlier proposed a May 31, 2024, deadline for announcing the new minimum wage.
