The meeting between the Organised Labour and the Federal Government held on Wednesday at the Conference Room of the Hon. Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige did not end in deadlock as reported in a section of the media.
The meeting was in fact successful as both the Federal Government team led by the Hon. Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige and the leadership of the organised Labour agreed to reconvene the meeting of the National Minimum Wage Tripartite Committee on Thursday, 4th October, 2018, to give enough time for the Income Salaries 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 NEC, with a view to suspending the proposed strike.
