The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called off its nationwide warning strike, as the union says the Federal Government is ready for negotiations.
The announcement of the suspension was made on Sunday by the NLC President Ayuba Wabba.
“The suspension takes effect from today Sunday,” he said.
He said the strike is being called off as a result of the firm and formal assurance of the Federal Government to reconvene the tripartite committee on the new minimum wage.
The suspension means workers are expected to resume duties on Tuesday as Monday has been declared a public holiday by the federal government to mark the October 1 Independence Day.
On Wednesday, NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, said the union was open to dialogue on the strike.
The minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, then assured the unions that the tripartite committee will reconvene to complete its negotiation.
