The Delta State Government has reached an agreement with Labour on the new national minimum wage for workers in the state.

Secretary to Delta State Government (SSG), Mr Chiedu Ebie, who is the Chairman of the Negotiation Committee, disclosed this after signing the new minimum wage documents on behalf of the State Government yesterday, Friday, January 10, 2020.

Ebie said the implementation of the new minimum wage would commence from November 1, 2019, while stating that the State Government will commence payment from January and pay the arrears of the new minimum wage with the January and February salaries.

He assured workers in the state that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa would continue to prioritise the welfare of workers as he was passionate about their wellbeing, even as he enjoined the state workforce to reciprocate government gesture by redoubling their commitment to their duties.

Ebie thanked both the government and Labor teams for their resilience in making the outcome of the negotiations fruitful.

Comrade Goodluck Ofobruku, the labour team leader and State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), commended the State Government for its transparency towards the smooth conclusion of the negotiation exercise.
