Suspension of Planed Strike
Following the meeting of the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage today 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 tomorrow 6th November, 2018 at 4:15 pm, the strike called to commence tomorrow has been suspended by the Leadership of Organised Labour.
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.
Solidarity for ever.
Dr Peter I. Ozo-Eson
