The federal government has assured the organized labor that the tripartite committee on the national minimum wage will conclude its negotiation before the expiration of the fourteen-day ultimatum.
The tripartite committee chairman, Amal Pepple, gave the assurance while addressing journalists on Thursday in Abuja. The Organized labor had on the twelfth of September issued a fourteen-day ultimatum that it would embark on nationwide strike if the committee does not reconvene and complete its work.
The ultimatum will expire on the twenty-fifth of September. The chairman said the committee has worked hard and have finished its assignment but still needs approval from the Federal and state Governments.
