Welcome to Service Charter

Introduction and Background Information

The National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission began operations in 1992 via Decree 99 of 1993. The setting of the Commission became important following the failure of ad-hoc commissions and panels set up by the government from time to time to review the salaries and wages of workers.

Having been established, the National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission, in conformity with its mandate, assumed the responsibility of advising the Federal Government on National Income Policy and recommending the proportion of income growth that should be utilized for general wage increase within the national confinement.

Furthermore, the Commission is to provide guidelines on profits and dividends based on movements in incomes, conduct research into wages and salary structures in both the private and public sectors, recommend salary scales that will apply to each post in the public service and examine the desirability of rationalizing and harmonizing wages, salaries, and other conditions of service between the public and private sectors.

To achieve an equitable, affordable and sustainable remuneration system.

Stakeholders Fora – Seminar and Workshops on Salary Administration.

Just as stated in our Vision/Mission Statement, the Commission is committed to providing the different levels of government, and other stakeholders with information and data that will guild decision making on public salaries and wage administration. These had been done in the previous national salary reviews and we are redoubling our commitment towards ensuring that every Nigerian worker gets a good living wage for increased productivity.

In this regard, therefore, seminars and surveys will be conducted regularly to ensure relativity in the different sectors of the economy.

Constraints of inadequate staff to carry out the periodic surveys on salaries and wages. There is also the constraint of funding which affects the mission and vision greatly.
