As Labour Meets With The Federal Government Over Minimum Wage
The Federal Government in a statement says the proposed meeting with the organized labour will not end in a deadlock.
This statement was released by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, through the Director of Press in the ministry, Samuel Olowookere.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported the minister met with labour leaders who were part of the Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage to give them an update on government ’s position.
The statement read: “The meeting was, in fact, successful as both the Federal Government team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment and the leadership of the organised labour agreed to reconvene the meeting of the National Minimum Wage Committee on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018.
“This is to give enough time for the National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission to round off the assignment given to it.
“As a result, labour agreed to reach out to its organs of leadership with the October 4th resumption date as demanded by its National Executive Council with a view to suspending the proposed strike”.
