Nigeria Union of Teachers said it has filed trade disputes with the Registrar of Trade Unions against the “non-cooperative” state governments.
This is due to failure of some state governors to implement the thirty thousand Naira minimum wage for teachers in their states.
President, Muhammadu Buhari had on April eighteenth, twenty-nineteen, signed the new minimum wage of thirty thousand Naira into law, and states and federal governments were expected to comply with the new constitutional provision.
While some states complied, some others have yet to implement it.
NUT National President, Audu Titus-Amba, Though failed to mention the names of the defaulting states, decried the failure of the minimum wage to meet the needs of workers.
