Oranmiyan De, Gov Aregbesola Acknowledges the crowd

The Osun State Government has fulfilled all the conditions necessary for the implementation of the N18,000 Minimum Wage Law.

After an exhaustive meeting with leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), and the Joint Negotiating Councils 1, 2 and 3, Governor Rauf Aregbesola agreed to pay the N18,000.00 Minimum Wage to all workers on Grade Level 01 to 07 with immediate effect.

By this concession, workers on salary Grade Level 01 would now be paid N18,000.00 as opposed to the N9,000 which they were earning before.

Workers on salary Grade Levels 08 to 17 are being pro-rated in the implementation of the Minimum Wage in ascending order of magnitude. In essence, all workers are covered in the implementation of the Minimum Wage Law.

Governor Rauf Aregbesola has given a firm commitment to full implementation of the Minimum Wage Law as soon as the finances of the state government improve.

As at the time of negotiation, the Governor explained that retirees and pensioners were being owed arrears of N2.4billion of yet-to-be-paid claims.

This concession by the government arose from the care and concern of Governor Rauf Aregbesola for the welfare of workers and people at all times despite the lean finances of the state.

In line with the desire of the government to give the best to motivate its workforce, a Salaries and Wages Commission is to be put in place to determine what workers receive from time to time.
