This meeting comes at a critical juncture, as the previous round of negotiations ended abruptly on May 31st, with the Organized Labour negotiating team walking out after the government and Organized Private Sector (OPS) refused to move beyond their earlier offer of ₦60,000.

The upcoming meeting, scheduled for 10 am tomorrow, holds particular significance as the government is reportedly alarmed by the level of compliance and participation by workers in the first day of the indefinite nationwide strike.

According to Vanguard, a source has indicated that if the Federal Government and Organized Labour can reach a reasonable agreement during the meeting, the strike may be suspended.

The tripartite committee’s ability to find a compromise and address the demands of the workers will be crucial in resolving the ongoing industrial action and its potential impact on the nation’s economy. Observers will be closely watching the outcome of this critical meeting, which could pave the way for a resolution to the minimum wage dispute.
