The Federal Government has entered into a meeting with the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and other labour unions.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige led the Federal Government team.
The Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma are also part of the Federal Government team. Channels TV reports.
The meeting is aimed at averting planned nationwide industrial action proposed by labour unions over the new national minimum wage .
The labour leaders are insisting that the executive must pass the N30,000 new minimum wage structure as agreed to by the presidential tripartite committee, to the National Assembly or risk a resumption of the strike it had earlier suspended.
President Muhammadu Buhari had during his 2019 budget presentation to the National Assembly last month, announced that a high-powered technical committee would be set up to review the resolution of the tripartite committee on the minimum wage.
But the unions have vowed not to be part of the planned review by the high-powered technical committee as announced by the president.
They insisted that all discussions had ended on the new minimum wage as the labour union has taken a stand.
