The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Kogi state wing, have rejected the proposed percentage salaries by the state government.
This was part of the outcome of the emergency State Wing Executive Council (SWEC) meeting on Thursday, March 3, 2022.
A union official who pleaded anonymity told our correspondent that the state government proposed to pay Primary School Teachers 25% of the 18000 minimum wage or 17% of 30000 minimum wage.
He confirmed that the union leaders rejected the proposal by Kogi state government in totality.
“We absolutely rejected in totality such percentage payment of either 17% or 25%. May God help us. We need prayers at this crucial moment of our lives,” he said.
The State Governor, Yahaya Bello, approved the immediate implementation of the N30,000 new minimum wage two weeks ago.
The approval led to the suspension of planned industrial action by the organized labour in the state.
