The Federal Government has assured the organised labour that it will resume the payment of wage awards to workers this week.
The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Mrs Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, gave the assurance at a meeting with the leadership of NLC and TUC on Tuesday in Abuja.
The meeting was called by the minister
on account of the 14-day ultimatum issued to the government on the non implementation of the 16-point agreement reached with them on 2 October, 2023.
Onyejeocha pleaded with the labour organisations to withdraw their 14-day ultimatum, as the government had stepped up efforts to complete the implementation of that agreement.
She said that it was true they entered into an agreement, but the government has shown good faith and, considering the urgency of the issue at hand.
“I called this meeting because dialogue has always been the best way out, and we are all for the well-being of our people. I am here to show good cause as to why some agreement has not been met,” she said.
