Labour Suspends Nationwide Strike for Seven Days to Finalize Minimum Wage Negotiations    

The Organised Labour has suspended its nationwide strike for seven days to enable uninterrupted meetings with the tripartite committee on the new national minimum wage.
Labour congress leaders previously met with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, and other government officials on Monday night. During the meeting, Akume confirmed that President Bola Tinubu’s administration is committed to setting the minimum wage above N60,000.
Akume also assured that no worker would face repercussions for participating in the strike and that the tripartite committee would meet daily over the next week to finalize the new minimum wage. Following a scheduled 10 a.m. meeting with the FG Tripartite Committee yesterday (Tuesday), Labour decided to suspend the strike.
Consequently, all government and private offices are expected to reopen and operate as usual. TUC President Festus Osifo confirmed this development to newsmen in Abuja yesterday after a joint extraordinary national executive council meeting of the unions.
“A joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect,” he stated.
