ORGANISED LABOUR HAS SUSPENDED ITS PROPOSED STRIKE ACTION

This is coming after hours of meeting on Monday between Organised Labour, represented by the Nigeria Labour Congress, United Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress, and a Federal Government team headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

The Federal Government team, which also included the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, agreed to forward the two positions of the Government and Labour to President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, reports said.

NAN is also reporting that the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage, made up of the Government, Labour and Organised Private Sector, agreed on Monday to submit the report of the Committee to President Buhari on Tuesday at 4:15pm.

While the Federal Government is proposing N24,000 as minimum wage, the States have offered to pay N22,500, but Labour is demanding N30,000.

The President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, confirmed the suspension of the strike at the end of the last meeting of the tripartite committee on Monday night.
