ABUJA, June 4, 2024
The nationwide strike initiated by Organised Labour has been suspended for five days to facilitate uninterrupted negotiations with the tripartite committee on the new national minimum wage. This temporary halt was confirmed by a senior labour union source who spoke to Vanguard under the condition of anonymity.

The suspension follows a series of resolutions reached during a meeting between labour leaders and government officials, including the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, on Monday night. During the discussions, Akume affirmed that President Bola Tinubu’s administration is committed to setting a minimum wage above N60,000.

Akume also assured that no workers 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 the 10 a.m. meeting with the Federal Government’s Tripartite Committee today (Tuesday), labour leaders decided to suspend the strike. Consequently, all government and private offices are expected to reopen and resume normal operations.

This development represents a significant step towards resolving the minimum wage issue, enabling the tripartite committee to work towards an agreeable national minimum wage without further disruptions.
