Fresh update on FG, Labour final meeting over new minimum wage emerges

The Federal Government’s Tripartite Committee is almost close to agreeing on a new national minimum wage.

This was revealed by Hope Uzodinma on Friday.

“We had a very fruitful deliberation and of course you know it is a technical subcommittee of a committee.

“And at the level of the committee, we have reached near consensus and by the time we go to the plenary we will have a complete agreement and maybe from there the media can start their job. As it is now I think we are better of that we were,” Uzodinma said.

According to him, the committee just finished with their various unit meetings and have now proceeded to the plenary where the committee is expected to harmonize their decisions and hopefully come up with a figure.

Recall that the organised labour had rejected the N60,000 proposal and went on a nationwide strike on Monday.

The action was however suspended on Tuesday after the Federal Government promised to increase the minimum wage to an amount bigger than N60,000 as they resume negotiations.

The meeting, which is the fifth since the suspension of the industrial action by organised labour, is holding behind closed doors at the Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja.
