Junior workers on the Federal Government payroll have received the newly implemented minimum wage of N30,000.

This was made known by the National President of the Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) and member of the Joint Public Service Negotiating Council, Lawrence Amaechi.

According to him, officers on grade levels 01 to 06 got the new minimum wage as their August salary.

His words: “They have gone to commence the payment. They told us that they have started the payment and we have confirmed from our members that they were paid in August and have promised to pay the arrears in September.

“But, negotiations have stalled for now and during our last meeting, we said we were going to report to our principals, which we have done. We are waiting for directives from our members on what to do.

“But, we have started mobilising against them and hope that they will see reason and improve on what they are offering. we have adjourned and there is no date yet for the next meeting”.
