The need for the  inclusion and consideration of Media Salary Structure in the on-going negotiation of a new national minimum wage has again been advocated.

The immediate past Vice President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Zone B, Prince Dele Atunbi made the advocacy in a statement in Abuja.
Prince Atunbi a major  presidential  contender  in the union’s 2015 election posited that the present salary structure in the media industry is a slave wage that is keeping the journalists under the  jackboots of their employers.
The labour leader averred that the consideration and the inclusion of Media Salary Structure in the on-going negotiation of a new national minimum wage will go a long way in redressing the years of neglect the salary structure in the media industry has suffered.
Atunbi a presidential hopeful in the forthcoming NUJ national delegates conference coming up in Abeokuta later in the year   pointed out that media practitioners in Nigeria deserve a better deal going by their contributions to national development.
He canvassed the need for  the new national minimum wage  to be a true  living wage in line with the contemporary economic reality as well as  addressing  the disparity in salary structures in the country.
Prince Atunbi maintained that this will bring about equity, fair play and justice in the sector and will also  enhance productivity of the entire workforce.
