There might be an end to the unending tussle over the new national minimum wage between the Federal Government (FG) and the organized labour with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, confirming conciliation talks would hold on Sunday involving the tripartite committee.
Earlier, the FG through an ex parte application filed on its behalf by the Solicitor-General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Dayo Apata had mandated the organized labour from embarking on the proposed November 6 strike.
The minister in the statement, however, insists the conciliation meeting involving organised Labour, the organised private sector and government scheduled for Sunday remain unchanged.
“The conciliation meeting involving the Organised Labour, the Organised Private Sector and Government scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation by 6 p.m. is still on course and will hold,’’ he said.
Ngige further disclosed another meeting would hold on Monday at the same venue between the National Tripartite Minimum Wage Committee.
The minister appealed to all tripartite members to attend the meetings in the interest of the nation and finding a solution to the minimum wage impasse.
