Organised labour demands review of workers’ salaries



The Organised Labour on Sunday demanded a general review for civil servants’ salaries due to the current economic situation in the country.

The President of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Quadri Olaleye, made the demand during the 2022 International Workers’ Day celebrations in Abuja.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the TUC collaborated on the 2022 Workers’ Day celebration.

The TUC chief stressed the need for the government to review the salaries of civil servants, police, armed forces, and paramilitary personnel because of the high cost of living in the country.

He urged relevant government agencies and parastatals to ensure implementation of the pay rise after approval by the President.
