The newly re elected leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC in Imo State has vowed to ensure compliance with the N 30,000 new minimum wage for workers.
President Muhammadu Buhari had last week approved the new minimum wage.
Since the President approved the new minimum wage, there have been fears by workers in some States if State Governors will comply.
Speaking shortly after he was re elected NLC boss in Imo for a second term, Austin Chilkapu said Labour in Imo will ensure the implementation of the new minimum wage of 30,000 for its workers.
He said both public and private workers will benefit from the new wage.
Chilakpu vowed that the new leadership of labour in Imo State will in the spirit of unionism defend workers rights and privileges, urging the State government to pay workers and pensioners as justice demands.
He commended workers for being orderly during the election, urging them to continue to be hardworking.
The election was held at Labour House, Owerri where delegates drawn from various Unions from the national body were part of the exercise.
