The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have agreed to suspend the ongoing indefinite strike over disagreement on a new national minimum wage with the Federal Government for one week.

This medium learned that a source attending the ongoing NEC meeting in Abuja confirmed.

The source said, “A joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect.”

The strike, which started on Monday, entered the second day on Tuesday.

Economic activities were affected as a result of the industrial action.

The Federal Government on Monday said it would raise the N60, 000 offered as minimum wage after a meeting with the leadership of organised labour.

The labour leadership is expected to resume talks with the tripartite committee on a new national minimum wage today.
