BREAKING: Labour suspends Nationwide strike for five days

The Organised Labour has suspended the nationwide strike for five days to give room for uninterrupted meetings with the tripartite committee on the new national minimum wage.

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) president Festus Osifo said this on Tuesday in Abuja.

With this development, every government and private office is expected to reopen and function as usual.

Recall that the labour leaders had a successful meeting with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, George Akume, and other government officials on Monday and reached a resolution that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was committed to a new minimum wage higher than N60,000.

They equally resolved that the Tripartite Committee would meet every day for the next one week to arrive at an agreeable National Minimum Wage.

More details soon…
