Some days ahead of the deadline given by the organised labour for the
implementation of the new national minimum wage, the Federal Government has
stepped up efforts to avert a nationwide strike.
To this end ,the government held two meetings on Wednesday with organised
labour over workers’ threat to embark on an industrial action if the federal
government refuse to accept their demand for a new minimum wage
implementation by the 16th of October 2019.
It is recalled that the organised labour had at a meeting on the 2nd of October
asked the government to accept its demand on the consequential salary
adjustment arising from the new minimum wage or face industrial action.
