Following the meeting of the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage on Monday and the signing of the final report recommending 30,000 Naira as the recommended new national Minimum Wage and the readiness of Mr President to receive the report formally on Tuesday 6th November, 2018 at 4:15 pm, the strike called to commence on Tuesday has been suspended by the Leadership of Organised Labour.
This was contained a statement signed by Dr Peter I. Ozo-Eson, General Secretary, titled, ‘Suspension of Planed Strike’.
“Comrades, please note that there are still several bridges to cross before the new Minimum Wage becomes law. It is our collective commitment and dedication that has made the progress so far possible.
“We all need to stand ready in a state of full mobilization in case future action becomes necessary to push for the timely enactment and implementation of the new Minimum Wage.
“We wish to salute your commitment,” it stated.
