Labour leader urges FG to come up with recovery plan to protect jobs, income

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Wednesday urged the Federal Government to roll out recovery and resilience plans, which prioritise jobs, secure employment, protect income and ensure minimum living wages.

NLC President Comrade Ayuba Wabba made this call during his address to mark the 2020 World Decent Work Day with the theme: “A New Social Contract for Recovery and Resilience,” on Wednesday in Abuja.

He observed that there was a need to offer hope to workers and restore economic growth, while building a people and planet-oriented global economy.

Wabba, who said the current global economic model was flawed due to inequality and insecurity for workers and their families, stressed the need to promote inclusion and reduce the inequality gap.

He said an adequately-funded universal public health, education care, climate and technology transitions be central in economic planning and policy framing.
